Borrelia burgdorferi (the pathogen that causes Lyme) was named after Willy Burgdorfer. Burgdorfer claimed that the disease was the result of a biological weapons program that went awry. This is an interesting read:

If you're interested in the intersection between Lyme disease and investigations into it being a bioweapons program gone wrong there's a recent book on the subject.


I haven't read it, but I heard an interview with the author and the book sounds well researched. It doesn't reach a definitive conclusion that Lyme came from a bioweapons program gone wrong, but it does talk about other bioweapons programs similar to Lyme.
