The COVID-19 pandemic pushes us to understand past times with similar trials. How did earlier generations, faced with comparable challenges, respond to and overcome such periods of disturbance? The Spanish influenza of 1918 is a fascinating case study. Starkly devastating, it was considered the most severe pandemic when compared to others across nearly three centuries; it was responsible for anywhere from 17 to 50 million deaths worldwide.
