D. Mark Anderson, Assoc. Professor in our department of Agricultural Economics & Economics, will present his ongoing health research as a reflection on the 100th anniversary of the Flu Pandemic.
During the outbreak of Spanish Influenza in 1918-1919, Ag Hall was used as a detention hospital because of its modern facilities, such as electricity and running water. Linfield hospital ward spaces were rooms 301, 312 and 313. When Linfield Hall, then Agricultural Hall, first opened, these rooms were the Sewing Room, the Fitting Room and the Wardrobe. The Home Economics Department later moved to Herrick Hall.
