The exhibit received great response from the Jewish community, who then enthusiastically began to donate materials. From the outset, an agreement between the Jewish Federation and the UW Libraries gave the UW Libraries ownership of all collected materials, with Special Collections assuming custodianship of the archive. From its inception, the principal mission of the WSJHS has been to collect and preserve primary source materials from the Jewish community. In addition to collecting historical materials which are given to Special Collections to administrate , the WSJHS helps to prepare genealogies, develops and publishes materials based on the collections, exhibits materials of Jewish interest, sponsors and promotes lectures and programs specific to Jewish history, encourages research, and maps the landmarks of Jewish life in Washington State. Washington State has a large and active Jewish community that has been part of its history for nearly years. Jews settled elsewhere in Washington as well; Marcus Oppenheimer arrived during the German migration of the mid s, settled on the banks of the Columbia River, and in named a town Marcus after himself. The original town of Marcus was destroyed for the construction of the Grand Coulee Dam, but the town still exists in a nearby location. By , when Washington Territory became the forty-second state in the Union, Jewish citizens and businesses throughout Washington had been contributing to its development for four decades. German Jews arrived with the first wave of settlers to the Northwest in the early to mid part of the nineteenth century, and Eastern European Jews arrived in the s. By the first half of the twentieth century, strong Ashkenazic Orthodox and Reform communities had taken root in Seattle.

Part of the Archives of Virology. The filoviruses Lake Victoria marburgvirus and ebolaviruses are etiological agents of severe hemorrhagic fevers with extraordinary high case-fatality rates for humans, chimpanzees, gorillas, and probably other animals. Many institutions and experts consider them as potential threats to humanity because they could be used as biological weapons. This book summarizes in detail the contemporary knowledge of filoviruses and diseases they cause. Almost the entirety of the open literature on filoviruses, covering all major scientific and clinical fields, is referenced and summarized in this text, including most of the conference abstracts, book chapters, dissertations, government reports, patents, theses, and journal publications in many languages. The book will provide a robust source of knowledge for filovirologists, virologists and scientists in general, clinicians, students, journalists, and biodefense professionals.
