    Title Destroying the Life and Career of a Valued Physician-scientist Who Tried to Protect Us from Plague: Was It Really Necessary?
    Date August 2006
    Journal Clinical Infectious Diseases : an Official Publication of the Infectious Diseases Society of America

    Thomas Campbell Butler, at 63 years of age, is completing the first year of a 2-year sentence in federal prison, following an investigation and trial that was initiated after he voluntarily reported that he believed vials containing Yersinia pestis were missing from his laboratory at Texas Tech University. We take this opportunity to remind the infectious diseases community of the plight of our esteemed colleague, whose career and family have, as a result of his efforts to protect us from infection by this organism, paid a price from which they will never recover.

    Title Swimmer's Goggles for Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca.
    Date September 1977
    Journal Archives of Ophthalmology

    Swim goggles with a moist chamber effect have been used successfully in seven patients with severe keratoconjunctivitis sicca unresponsive to the conventional means of therapy including artificial tears, mucolytics, and occlusion of the puncta. The longest follow-up is three years, the shortest six months. There have been no complications, and in all cases the patients have been subjectively and objectively improved.
