Mr. Tucker, the author of Scourge, talked about the origins of smallpox and how it spread throughout the world. He also talked about World Health Organization’s eradication of the disease, although the possible use of smallpox in weapons has caused vaccination to begin again. He responded to audience telephone calls, faxes and electronic mail.
