I found a list of famous people who graduated from Iowa. I thought it was kind of cool and thought I would share it with you.
George Gallup (Gallup polls)
Mildred Wirt Benson (Nancy Drew creator)
B.J. Armstrong (played for the Bulls during the MJ era)
Robert C. Hardin (guy who developed blood bank proceedures)
James Van Allen (the Van Allen radiation belt)
W.P. Kinsella (writer of Field of Dreams)
There were also about 15 Pulitzer Prize winners on the list - Iowa has the #1 ranked creative writing program in the nation (according to US News and World Report).
Anyway, I thought that was interesting and that I would toot Iowa's horn since nobody else does.
