Betty Bumpers, wife of the then-Arkansas Governor Dale Bumpers, in 1973 launched the Arkansas statewide immunization program "Every Child by '74", whose task force included the Arkansas League for Nursing, the State Health Department, the Arkansas National Guard, the State Nurses Association, the State Medical Society, the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Arkansas, the Education Department, religious groups, and other volunteers. The "Every Child by '74" project, under Bumpers' leadership, received national recognition for its success and accomplishments and was used as a model for immunization programs across the nation. It continued into the next decade.
