Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A small collection of items relating to the 1918-19 influenza epidemic. Included are letters and diaries from 44 individuals, almost all either members of the U. S. Armed Forces or their relatives and friends, who provide a personal commentary on the disease's impact on them and their communities. A few contemporary public announcements, articles, advertisements, and other ephemera add to the record of perceptions and concerns of the time.
