Atomic photoionization using electron spectroscopy was one of the scientific topics in which Professor David A. Shirley excelled and established a research legacy. We discuss selected highlights of atomic photoionization research done by the Shirley group beginning in the 1970s. Our main topics are electron correlation satellites, photoelectron angular distributions with tunable synchrotron radiation, and developments of theory. We also discuss examples of more recent research that extends the earlier work, including double K-shell photoionization, nondipole interactions, and the pervasive role of interchannel coupling. We conclude with examples of current experimental and theoretical research.
