This tribute to the memory of my old friend and collaborator, Richard Arnowitt, focuses on the history, results and physical significance of the Arnowitt-Deser-Misner formulation of General Relativity, starting from its birth in 1958-9 through its completion, in a series of over a dozen papers, in 1962-3. A few of its later applications are also reviewed.
