Flu at the U

In the fall of 1918, Spanish influenza struck the University of Minnesota as a result of the influx of students in the Student Army Training Corps, shown here in a photo from University Archives. The epidemic occurred during the first weeks of the opening of the new student health service, taxing its personnel and facilities. The start of fall semester was postponed for three weeks that year, and by the end of winter 2,000 cases of influenza were reported and twenty deaths had occurred. See enlarged photo >
