Bozeman Locals Who Became Famous – Our Successful 6

This topic was another assignment from our digital genius Cole, and I must say I had NO CLUE how many famous people were either from, or spent a good amount of time here!

Now, I will say I got most of these facts from Wikepedia…

We’ll start with some of the more well known peps –

jack horner
Museum of the Rockies

Jack Horner – The dinosaur dude.  He was the technical advisor for Jurrasic Park – and we are lucky enough to have him at our own Museum of The Rockies.


Ted Turner – Founder of CNN and WTBS – which started the cable super-station revolution. Look around Bozeman.  See a wide open space of land?  He probably owns it.


kevin michael connelly

Kevin Michael Connolly – Born without legs, Kevin didn’t let that or anything else stop him from accomplishing more than many of us will ever will. Kevin is a graduate from Montana State University, and in 2007, Kevin won a silver medal in the X-Games in the Mono-Ski races. Recently Kevin had a series of photographs on display at the Smithsonian that chronicled his journey through countries around the world. Watch a great video profiling Kevin from ESPN  here.


Alex Lowe – widely considered one of his generation’s finest all-around mountaineers. He rode out a 40 foot fall while ice climbing in Hyalite Canyon and stopped to get coffee before going to the hospital. He eventually lost is life to an Avalanche in Tibet.

Most of the above names you probably have heard about – but did you know?

Jan Stenerud
