1918 Flu Pandemic

EXETER – Join us at the Exeter Historical Society, 47 Front St., on Tues., November 13, at 7:30 p.m., for a talk by local professor, Marion Girard-Dorsey. (Refreshments are served at 7:00 p.m). Her presentation, The 1918 Flu Pandemic, will cover the Spanish Flu pandemic that spread across the world. She will explore the role of World War I in the lethality of the virus, brought on by massive troop movements which probably increased its transmission. This program is free and open to the public.

Marion Girard-Dorsey is an assistant professor of history at the University of New Hampshire where she teaches modern world history, wartime propaganda and the history of espionage. Her research work is in the fields of European history, the history of medicine in the United States, history of law, and diplomatic and military history. She received her Ph.D. from Yale University.

This program is made possible by the University of NH Speakers Bureau, which connects faculty and staff speakers with non-profit organizations to share the research and knowledge of the university with the people and communities of New Hampshire.
