Mathematical models of size and shape have played a prominent role in the first half century of Growth. In honor of the fiftieth anniversary of the journal, this paper reviews the development of these models. An historical perspective is taken with a focus on the changing context in which mathematical models have been studied. Early models were thought to represent principles or laws of growth. Today, models are viewed as tools for biologic analysis. We trace this contextual shift through specific models developed and used in Growth.
