“The Spanish Influenza is Here": Memories of the 1918 Influenza Epidemic in Eastern North Carolina is the latest exhibition from our History Collections. The new display explores the lethal influenza virus strain and its rampage through the eastern counties of North Carolina in the fall of 1918. Newspaper articles, personal correspondence, heath department postings, and artifacts from the Country Doctor Museum bring to light the fear North Carolina citizens felt during this dark period in history. The exhibit also examines the health care crisis during the epidemic and the steps taken to improve public health in North Carolina in the years that followed.
“The Spanish Influenza is Here”: Memories of the 1918 Influenza Epidemic in Eastern North Carolina is on display in the Evelyn Fike Laupus Gallery, 4th Floor Laupus Library through December 16, 2018.
