Join Alan Hawk, the museum's Historical Collections Manager, to learn how the "Spanish Flu" of 1918 spread through Montgomery County, Maryland, and its effect on its population. Then, explore how nearly a century after the pandemic, Montgomery County continues to play a role in characterizing and understanding the 1918 influenza virus, as federal, civilian, and military public health agencies monitor incidences of emerging novel influenza strains that may arise worldwide.
