Living With the Flu: Public Health and Civic Life During the Spanish Influenza Pandemic of 1918

Abstract Abstract: Most studies on how U. S. cities responded to the first deadly wave of Spanish influenza focused on how public health officials and their allies responded to the crisis. This report expands our knowledge of the pandemic by focusing on how members of the public reacted to those attempts to contain the flu by focusing on how residents of the community responded to those efforts to contain the flu. During the flu epidemic in a small city in the southern Midwest for the 30-two days, it did so through a close glance at social and civic life. Shifting is a method that brings previously unknown gaps in the public health response into focus. This report finds that although most areas were positive, there were two areas where it was lacking: support for American involvement in the European War and civic engagement in social or civic activities.
