The 1918 Spanish Influenza Pandemic-Oakland Newspaper Articles
Patients being cared for in the Auditorium Hospital, Oakland, 1918.
In observance of the 90th anniversary of the worldwide outbreak of Spanish Influenza in 1918, I present here transcriptions of articles (and extracts from articles) from various Oakland, California newspapers.
I have chosen articles which illustrate the progression of the epidemic in Oakland and surrounding towns, and have also transcribed all available death notices and obituaries for Oakland-affiliated influenza victims. The articles are linked to below, in chronological order.
