Influenza 1918: What Does History Teach Us About Crisis and Change? 
Presented by Professor Robert Forrant at the LHC Annual Meeting on September 24, 2021

By taking a look at how the U.S. responded to the 1918 influenza, we may consider whether we learn from history or seem more likely caught in a hamster wheel of repetitious trial and error. LHC Board Member and Distinguished University Professor of History at UMass Lowell Robert Forrant, PhD explored the larger history and then the history in our region, with mention of the hospital established in Lawrence on Emery Hill (now Tower Hill).
