What The 1918 Pandemic Was Like Here

By on May 28, 2020


Verona resident Jane Eliasof is the executive director of the Montclair History Center, where she delves deeply into people, places and now, pandemics. Specifically, the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918 and 1919.

“Since the lock-down in March, I’ve been researching how a local community responded to the epidemic by scanning the Montclair Times from that year,” Eliasof says. “It’s been fascinating to discover both the similarities and differences today.”

You can learn about what she found out today, Thursday, May 28, in two live Zoom calls at noon and again at 7 p.m. The link to access them is here.

    I’d like it very much if a link for these zoom calls could be posted if they were recorded. I was unable to listen in yesterday. The topic is quite fascinating. Thanks so much.
