Let’s face it. Montana is known for its national parks, its fishing and its hunting. Other than Lewis and Clark, it’s not widely known as a major contributor of human capital to the American Republic.
It surprised me just how many important people came from Montana and how many make Montana their summer home. This gallery in particular was very enlightening. I mean, who outside Montana knew that Dana Carvey was born in Missoula, or that Tom Brokaw owns a ranch near Livingston, or that NBA super coach Phil Jackson was born in Deer Lodge? Not this guy.
