There has been considerable progress made in the discovery, observation, and understanding of high redshift galaxies in the last few years; most of this progress is attributable to greatly improved spectroscopy throughput made possible by state-of-the-art instruments on the new generation of 8-10m telescopes. Here we review a few of the areas in which substantial progress has been made, and discuss the future of high redshift galaxy work in the context of the observational facilities that are either in operation or soon to come.

Additional Information:© 2000 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE). I would like to thank my collaborators, Kurt Adelberger, Max Pettini, Alice Shapley, Mark Dickinson, and Mauro Giavalisco for their contributions to much of the work discussed here. Of course, the work would not be possible without the generous gift of the W.M. Keck Foundation which allowed construction of the Keck Observatory, and the instrument and telescope builders whose work enables the science. Most of the work described above has been supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation through grant AST95-96229, and by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. Finally, I would like to acknowledge financial support from the European Southern Observatory that allowed me to attend this fascinating meeting.
