Dancing with the Spanish Lady: The Influenza Pandemic of 1918

Marin,
Art Museum of Sonoma County
Event Description

 The Spanish Flu killed more people than World War I, the number fluctuating between 20 and 40 million people. Of the US soldiers who died in Europe, half of them died of influenza and not to the enemy. American society was equally impacted as it infected 28% of Americans. This talk will address how two cities, Milwaukee and San Francisco, were impacted by the flu pandemic and how they dealt with it. 


A lifelong interest in history led Dr. Brigitte Charaus to an interdisciplinary PhD in History, Physical Anthropology and Public Health from Marquette University.  A university professor since 1998 she has taught at a number of institutions both in her native Wisconsin (Marquette University, Mount Mary College) and her new Bay Area home (Santa Clara University, DeAnza College).  Her current focus, as an urban historian, is an extensive study of the 1918 Influenza Pandemic in San Francisco and Milwaukee, WI.
