Abstract

The first few binary pulsars revealed the richness of evolution possible in binary systems containing neutron stars. Products of different evolutionary routes, in high and low mass binaries, as well as examples of evolution affected by the pulsar wind were among the first ten objects discovered. This article presents a historical review of the impact of binary pulsars on the early development of ideas regarding the evolution of neutron stars in binary systems.
