Looking back on the Spanish Flu in Columbia, Missouri

2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the Spanish Flu pandemic and our own Amanda Sprochi was featured in the Missourian’s Looking back on Spanish flu: ‘A serious epidemic of influenza is impending. She not only talks about In Flew-Enza: Spanish Flu in Columbia, the exhibit she originally created in 2015, but she also assisted the Missourian reporters with finding library resources for their story.

To Amanda, “it is important for people to remember a time before vaccines when millions of people died from diseases that are now preventable.”

The In Flew-Enza: Spanish Flu in Columbia exhibit currently resides on the 3rd floor of the Health Sciences Library.
