When asked to write a contribution to the memorial special issue for Peter Freund I went through my memory of the first time I met Peter. This was in 1971 when Dual Models were very popular and I had just joined in the efforts. For a number of years I worked on the problem of finding a realistic Dual Model/String Theory for hadrons, and here I will review those efforts as they happened, but also in the light of what we now know about hadrons from QCD. I will argue for when a string picture of hadrons is appropriate and discuss its limitations and the specific results you get from it.
