Title

"Trinity Very Largely Escaped the First Epidemic of Influenza": An Extract from the 1919 S.A.T.C. Bulletin

Subject

Trinity College and the Influenza Pandemic of 1918

Description

The first and only time the word “influenza” is explicitly stated in any official College publication is the January 1919 bulletin from the S.A.T.C., where the College references the quarantine and illness among the S.A.T.C. broadly:

“Trinity very largely escaped the first epidemic of influenza, but later a considerable number of men were isolated or confined in the hospitals on account of what may or may not have been real influenza. Again the orders from Washington discharging men at various times all through the month of December naturally broke up many classes.”
