The Deadliest Pandemic in History: Stories from the 1918 Spanish Flu

In the midst of the current quarantine, with the infected and death counts rising everyday, it can be hard to keep positive. Yet a little more than 100 years ago, a massive influenza outbreak shook the world. It was the deadliest pandemic in history, infecting a third of the world’s population and killing between 20 to 50 million. At the time, doctors did not know how to treat the illness, and many public places were shut down to stop the spread. The Wolfpacket Staff present an archived copy of the 1919 CHS Yearbook which readers may find interesting due to the parallels to the current situation.
