On the day before Thanksgiving last year, as millions of Americans prepared to roast turkeys, a section of Interstate 95 cooked for several hours at about a thousand degrees. "The flames were 30 feet in the air," recalls Paul Hubbe. He's seated behind the wheel of a blinding-yellow truck, driving past the spot of that big burn, which occurred a few hundred yards from the Washington Beltway near College Park. "See that tree?" asks Hubbe, wagging an index finger at some of the damage. "That's all charred."

Baltimore lawyer and former Maryland legislator Julian L. Lapides tells a story about how he got hooked up with the American Antiquarian Society, a story involving decades-long pursuits, fascinating characters, tangents, chance meetings and, well, it's a Lapides story. The point is that the famously chatty Lapides is chairman of the board of the American history archive and research organization based in Worcester, Mass. That means he helps run AAS business and acts as host for the semiannual meeting this week, which is being held in Baltimore for the first time in the society's almost two-century history, near as anyone can tell.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Some of the viruses are already notorious, such as Ebola and HIV. Others have less familiar names: Marburg and Lassa fever. But they share one feature: All have emerged in recent decades from sub-Saharan Africa, perplexing scientists and, in the case of HIV, killing millions. Africa is now recognized as an ideal incubator for new pathogens: It has rapidly growing human populations and high biodiversity, along with widespread poverty, poor medical care and, in many countries, armed conflict that forces civilians to flee far from their homes.

UIGE, Angola - For nearly four weeks, teams of health experts have been trying to set up a rescue operation in this town of windowless, crumbling buildings with no running water, intermittent electricity, poor sanitation and a perennially jammed telephone network. They are trying to contain the world's worst outbreak of one of the world's most frightening viruses, known as Marburg. But with the death toll rising every day, no one is predicting success soon. A cousin of Ebola, the Marburg virus has erupted periodically in Africa in sudden, gruesome epidemics, only to disappear just as mysteriously.
