The study of random matrices started with Wishart's investigations of sample covariance matrices. They became important with Wigner's surmise which connected random matrices with nuclear physics. Since then, the field has been growing, with landmark contributions of Mehta, Dyson, Tracy, Widom, to mention a few. This talk will go over the journey of the subject. Recent developments in the field will also be talked about towards the end.
