One of the best books that I have ever read is: "Vaccinated: One Man's Quest to Defeat the World's Deadliest Diseases", Paul Offit, author. Maurice Hilleman of Miles City, MT created 9 vaccines ...Mumps, Rubella and Measles among them. He was brilliant and we have so much to thank him for. Thanks for the articles. Interesting. The book has pictures of his home at the edge of MC at the time.

And he didn't care about credit (I'm looking at you, Jonas Salk) and he didn't care about making money for himself. He cared about saving lives!!!! We should have a statue in the park of Maurice with a chicken.
