Abstract: Starting with the first report of a magneto-optical effect in a colloid by Grove in 1845 and the unsuccessful search by Faraday, the various discoveries by Kerr, Majorana, Cotton and Mouton and others up to about 1940 are described. A survey of the development of the theoretical interpretation has as highlights Schmauss' idea of particle orientation, Cotton and Mouton realizing that thermal motion provided the opposing mechanism, and Langevin's statistical-mechanical treatment. This part ends with the expressions for the dichroism by Naik and Desai in 1964.
