The 1918 influenza pandemic killed an estimated 675,000 Americans, and tens of millions world-wide. Upstate New York was no exception.
Medical historian and retired professor Teresa Lehr is the author of several books on the history of healthcare in and around Rochester, NY. She has researched the flu pandemic extensively and will discuss its effects on central and western New York, including Auburn.
This talk is in conjunction to our exhibit, 1918: A Century Later, on view through December 29, 2018.
