JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Four new inductees into the Hall of Famous Missourians include a physician credited as the father of osteopathic medicine and a science fiction writer.

The hall is a collection of bronze busts that generally has honored people chosen by the House speaker. However, half the new inductees this time were chosen through a public nomination and vote.

The four inductees were identified to The Associated Press by House Speaker Tim Jones before they were publicly announced.

The people's top choice was Andrew Taylor Still, who founded the American School of Osteopathy in Kirksville. Science fiction writer Robert Heinlein also won public support.

For his part, House Speaker Tim Jones chose suffragist Virginia Minor and the late conservative politician Mel Hancock.
