The project Southam was proposing was a continuation of cancer studies he had been doing for well over a decade. He had already worked in Africa injecting an assortment of rare and common viruses including mumps, dengue, West Nile, and Semliki Forest virus in severely ill cancer patients. Southam had also performed cancer-cell experiments on more than healthy prisoners at an Ohio state penitentiary. The concept of informed consent was still in its infancy, the Nuremberg Code was regularly circumvented and researchers and hospital personnel understood the penalty for opposing or speaking out about a piece of questionable research.
June 5, James Lee Burke has seen and heard enough to fill a book. Actually, make that 22 books. Burke is best known for his novels featuring Dave Robicheaux, an Iberia Parish detective who sees the world in black and white, a man who is haunted at times by his own alcoholism and his desire to do right in a world ruled by insanity.
At 65 years old, Burke is a demure man with small, penetrating eyes and a disarming smile. There are times he laughs so hard it ends in a coughing fit. But for the man who lives in New Iberia, with a second home in Missoula, Mont.

After receiving countless D minuses on his papers, he approached his professor, certain he would receive an apology for the mistake of the low grades on his paper. Burke, is like an assault upon the eyeballs.
In his junior year, Burke transferred to the University of Missouri in Columbia to study journalism. He hoped that a career in journalism would lead to a literary career.
Instead of studying journalism, he studied creative writing and met his future wife, Pearl. Inhe graduated with honors. Before he mastered the bestseller, Burke was a jack of all trades — a land man for Sinclair Oil Company, a truck driver for the U.
The best job he ever had for his writing was as a land surveyor for pipelines in Texas and Colorado. Pipeliners were the most unusual, interesting people I ever knew. He went into the Army as a private and when he was discharged seven years later, he was still a private.
