Abstract. The history of our understanding of the interstellar medium has a pre-modern era and an early-modern era. Several threads show continuity in observational approach and interpretation, reaching from the first decade of the last century to the present. The first 50 years were a period of pioneering work, done mostly by stellar astronomers, who chanced upon the ISM by a strange variety of pathways.
