Summary

The smallpox eradication listserv—which contains the names of many who worked in the smallpox eradication program—looks like a page from the Who's Who of public health, including many who became public health leaders during the 20th century. The listserv has been particularly active recently in sharing condolences with the family of Donald A. Henderson and reminiscing about the great man that he was.
