Back in 2006 folks in Miles and/or those with connections to the community led a campaign to have Maurice R. Hilleman inducted into the Gallery of Outstanding Montanans. We were successful, though it took until 2015 for the induction to actually happen (??). Better late than never, I suppose.

I had forgotten about it until today and did some looking into it.

Someone asked where to learn more about Hilleman. There’s a quite a bit available online (including here). Also, Paul Offit, Hilleman’s son-in-law published a good biography of the man:

Paul A. Offit. VACCINATED: ONE MAN'S QUEST TO DEFEAT THE WORLD'S DEADLIEST DISEASES (2007).
