Lectures: “Building a Collection: Personal Narratives from 1918-1919 Influenza Pandemic, New York Academy of Medicine

Please join us on Wednesday, August 18, 2021, at 6 p.m. ET, for a virtual talk by Russell Johnson, Curator of the History of Medicine and Sciences at UCLA Special Collections: Building a Collection: Personal Narratives from the 1918-1919 Influenza Pandemic. More than a decade ago, UCLA Library Special Collections began collecting individual letters, diaries, ephemera, and other mostly English-language items about the global 1918-1919 influenza pandemic. Students, faculty, journalists and other researchers use the collection to experience firsthand accounts of the flu and its impact on life and death in the military and on the home front. We will look (remotely) at a selection of these materials and discuss collecting, writing styles, handwriting, genealogy, digitization and more. Go to our events site here: https://www.nyam.org/events/event/building-collection-personal-narratives-1918-1919-influenza-pandemic/   to register and the zoom link will be sent to you in advance of the event.
