Abstract: From first paper (1958) to last (probably not yet published), Bohdan Paczynski contributed a truly remarkable number of ideas to a wide range of astronomical subfields. The current discussion attempts to provide an overview of his work and its impact, focusing on some aspects not emphasized in other presentations, including a few ideas that did not entirely pan out. I note also a number of awards, quotes, and other items that reflect his place in our collective folklore.
