From Ebling's History of Medicine Librarian, Micaela Sullivan-Fowler at UW-Madison, presented for Waunakee Public Library on October 21, 2020.
In 2018 Micaela Sullivan-Fowler installed an exhibition called "Staggering Losses: WW1 and the Influenza Pandemic of 1918." Little did she know that the exhibition would be shuttered by another Pandemic, the one we are experiencing in 2020.
- She will give a short background on the exhibition itself, how the "Spanish Flu" affected our local populations
- and how the exhibition resonated for those who visited.
- Micaela will also touch on the similarities and differences between the two Pandemics.
