Spanish Influenza, Jan. 10, 1919

Sheridan Media reporter Pat Blair looks back in time, over 100 years ago, to the impact of Spanish influenza as reported in the pages of the Sheridan Enterprise in 1919.

The Sheridan newspaper reported today, Jan. 10, that across Wyoming, the flu situation showed a marked improvement during December. At the beginning of the month, there were nearly 1,500 cases, and at the close, 97. The situation was reported well in hand everywhere except in the Jackson Hole country, where a lack of doctors proves a handicap.

In the Big Goose community, Don Firth is reported recovered from the flu sufficiently to go back to school.
