Abstract: Intense, highly-variable gamma-ray emission from blazars was a principal discovery made with EGRET on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory. The EGRET data remain a valuable resource for modeling of blazar astrophysics and for planning of future gamma-ray missions such as AGILE and GLAST. This presentation will review a bit of history and summarize the EGRET blazar legacy, with emphasis on work done since the end of the Compton Observatory mission.
