This is a virtual ticket to attend the Humboldt History Symposium 2020's Keynote presentation titled:
The Spanish Flu Comes to Humboldt in 1918 by Lynette C Mullen
Learn about the 1918 Spanish Flu in Humboldt County, how it developed, the community impact, and the now familiar strategies of masking, closing non-essential businesses, churches, schools and more, were undertaken to protect the community
Lynette Mullen is an independent project manager and local historian. Her accidental discovery of historic documents describing the brutal murder of a young woman in Arcata in 1862 sparked her obsession with Humboldt County history. Her research on that murder, the Spanish Flu and more has since been shared in her local history blog, numerous articles, presentations, a TedX talk and multiple OLLI courses.
