"DeMcCarthy Last to be Discharged": An Extract from the Trinity Tripod
Trinity College and the Influenza Pandemic of 1918
The Tripod also reported that one of the College’s S.A.T.C. members had been stricken with the influenza several months later: in January 1919, Paul de McCarthy had “not yet received his discharge” as he was “at the Hartford Hospital recovering from the Spanish influenza and pneumonia.” Like William Hamersley ’09, McCarthy was serving at Camp Devens in Massachusetts when he fell ill.
