Who Is Your Pick for Missouri’s Hall of Fame?

So who do you think should be in Missouri’s Hall of Famous Missourians at the state capitol?
Missouri House Speaker says he’s opening up the nominating process for two of the next three inductees.
Two years ago, the inclusion of conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh, a Missouri native, touched on a controversy.
Former House Speaker Steve Tilley made that selection.
There are more than 40 bronze busts of well known Missourians placed in the halls of the Capitol. They include former President Harry Truman, Mark Twain and Walt Disney.
Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones says he wants too know who Missourians want to add to that list.
““During my time as a member of the Missouri House I have heard from citizens from all around this state who have strong opinions about great Missourians that should be included in the Hall,” Jones said in a statement.
Jones says Missourians can nominate someone online at http://www.house.mo.gov from now until September 13.
He says they will develop a Top 10 List for another vote.
The speaker expects to select two of the nominees off that list. The final voting will close on October 13.
He will make a decision on the third inductee.
The Speaker’s news release notes, “To visit the Hall of Famous Missourians inductee nomination page directly, please visit http://www.house.mo.gov/FamousMissourianSuggestions.aspx. Suggestions will be accepted until Friday, September 13. Voting will conclude Sunday, October 13”.

  1. I would like to suggest Claude T. Smith, internationally know Band Composer for election into the Missouri Hall of Fame. His pieces are still played by bands all over the world. He was a wonderful kind and loving person.
