Spanish Flu in 1918 Boone County

November 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In September 1918, the Spanish flu epidemic reached Boone County. What started as a contained virus on the MU campus quickly spread to the rest of the community. We can learn about the local events of that pandemic through our newspaper archives. Enjoy a fascinating look back at local history from library staffer and genealogist Tim Dollens.
