Introduction:

On August 19, DA Henderson, leader of the successful-against-all-odds World Health Organization's global eradication campaign against smallpox, died at the age of 87. My colleagues and I at our Center will miss him very much. I wanted to reflect on some of the amazing things he did in his life and on a few of the personal characteristics that helped him contribute so much for so long.
