I’m as puzzled as you at the lack of documents. It sure would be interesting if any family letters from that time that individuals may have stored away in shoeboxes would shed any more light on the Spanish Flu at Wake Forest College!
Great read! Appreciate the in-depth research on this bit of WF history. ZSR SC&A does it again!
This is really a fascinating look into both how the pandemic of 1918-19 affected campus, and how our documents tell us the story of that time. Thanks for this insightful look!
Thank you for the look back into history and life at WFU during the Spanish Influenza Katie! Who knew that 100 years later . . .
Very cool to take a look back, thank you for going deep into the digitized archives Katie!!
In the 2nd paragraph, you mistakenly put 2018 instead of 1918. Enjoyed the article.
Thank you! We corrected that.
