We Are Afraid: Clay County and the Spanish Flu at Hjemkomst Center

December 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A Local History of the Spanish Flu
from HCSCC Archivist Mark Peihl
Join us at the Hjemkomst Center on Tuesday, December 11, at 6:00PM, as HCSCC Senior Archivist Mark Peihl offers a history of the deadliest flu pandemic in recorded history: the Spanish Flu. The disease came to the Red River Valley in late-September of 1918 and proceeded to infect thousands and kill hundreds in the Red River Valley. Globally, it infected about one-third of the population and killed between 50-100 million people (about 2.5 – 5% of the population). Using diary and journal entries, public health data, and modern science, Mark reconstructs and reexamines the local front of the flight.

This event is offered in conjunction with our current exhibition, War, Flu, & Fear: World War I and Clay County.

Reserve your seats here.
