Kansas’ Unstoppable Pandemic: The Spanish Flu of 1918-1919

SALINA – Join Tyler Johnson as he discusses a brief history of the 1918-1919 influenza, or as most of us know it, the Spanish Flu, a global pandemic that killed more people than World War I.

Johnson will discuss the beginnings of the pandemic, why it was so deadly and what we know now. He will also share how Kansas and Salina fared. Johnson has been fascinated by, and has studied, the pandemic for years. A recent graduate of the history program at Emporia State University, he’s presented on this topic numerous times, including to the Kansas Association of Historians.

This free presentation is offered at the Smoky Hill Museum, on Thursday, March 1, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
