The Forgotten Flu

Dec 15, 2018-Feb 15, 2019:

In 1918 the Spanish Flu swept around the globe and Nanaimo was not immune.  Local business, industries and schools closed and an emergency hospital opened.  To coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Spanish Flu Epidemic, Vancouver Island University history students, supervised by Katharine Rollwagen, have developed an exhibit in the Community Gallery that looks at how the Spanish Flu affected Nanaimo.
