AbstractOne hundred years ago, the Spanish flu marched across the globe, leaving between 50 and 100 million people dead in its wake. An exhibit The 1918 Flu Epidemic and Baltimore: 100 Years Later, at the Frieda O. Weise Gallery on the University of Maryland Baltimore campus, chronicles what was going on in the city. Professor Wilbur Chen, a vaccine development specialist, tells us how the flu spreads, and how to prevent it. And Tara Wink, UMB librarian and archivist, offers takeaways from what she learned in compiling the exhibit (from the WYPR website).
DescriptionIncludes a discussion of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History’s exhibition “Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World”. Adapted for use by UMB’s Health Sciences and Human Services Library, it is on display in the Frieda O. Weise Gallery from August 24, 2018 through October 14, 2018.
