The early and late stages of star formation and star death remain puzzles. Results from Spitzer and Herschel on the Magellanic Clouds demonstrated the power of infrared stellar populations. We need to do similar studies of galaxies in the local volume and go fainter in the Magellanic Clouds. JWST, and far-infrared observations will be needed.
