Comparative History: Spanish Influenza and Covid-19 in America by Sean Loughran
The idea for a comparative history came from observations of the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic and then an examination into the Influenza Pandemic of 1918-1919 to see what similarities could be found. The results of this research culminated in the three exhibits available on this site. The primary goal of this comparative history is to leave any visitors with an enhanced awareness of how history tends to rhyme and the lessons that can be learned from examining similar trends and happenings from the events of two pandemics within the United States.
