Wow! I got them all, I was dismayed when I saw the Final Jeopardy category! Lucky, that's me!

The laboratory that discovered the bug that is known as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever is in Hamilton, Montana. I lived there before we moved to Missoula. I was a personal care attendant for the wife of the man who did the research, before I went to nursing school.
