The Forgotten Spanish Influenza of 1918 and Why It Should Be Remembered

This paper will deal with the Spanish Influenza of 1918-1919. It will analyze the unique aspects of the relatively unknown epidemic, and examine important questions that will enable us to determine why it was virtually written out of history, and learn from the world’s experience. From a historical perspective, the paper will trace American and world history regarding the disease, and relate the past to contemporary epidemic policy.
