The history and effects of the flu in Oshkosh

Oshkosh in 1918: an interdisciplinary study of the 1918 influenza epidemic


The influenza epidemic that swept the globe in the summer and fall of 1918 killed more than 20 million people worldwide.  In 2001, students at UW-Oshkosh engaged in a research project to understand the local scope and effects of the flu in Winnebago County.  This site describes the history of the disease, the science behind its spread, and the memories of those who lived through the epidemic.
