Abstract: We prove a factorization result for relatively compact subsets of compact operators using the Bartle and Graves Selection Theorem, a characterization of relatively compact subsets of tensor products due to Grothendieck, and results of Figiel and Johnson on factorization of compact operators. A further proof, essentially based on the Banach-Dieudonné Theorem, is included. Our methods enable us to give an easier proof of a result of W.H. Graves and W.M. Ruess.
