An attempt is made to present a (somewhat personal) history of how at the Computer Vision Laboratory in the late 1980's adopting robust techniques from statistics naturally arose from a quest for better multiresolution image analysis algorithms. While today these robust techniques are routinely used in the vision community, their rapid dissemination was in no small measure due to the unfettered research atmosphere which characterized the lab. Beside trying to record an instance of interdisciplinary research, a few technical issues (most of which were yet to be understood then) are also discussed.
