  5. Bicentennial Speaker Series: Dr. Mark Furnish ~ An Ode to Ella Rhea: The 1918 Influenza Pandemic in Jefferson County and the World

    November 10, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM @ Madison Public Library

    Dr. Mark A. Furnish, a native of Madison, will discuss: 1) What was the 1918 "Spanish Flu," and why was it so deadly; 2) How it spread around the world and data on mortality; 3) When it arrived in Jefferson County, and how local officials dealt with it; 4) Why this world historic event has been lost to public memory; and 5) Why it is possible (perhaps likely) that a similar flu pandemic will occur in the future. Dr. Furnish will introduce the story of his great-aunt, Ella Rhea Carson, who at 22 years old had just finished nurses training at King's Daughters’ Hospital in 1918. She died on November 21 of pneumonia as a complication of the flu. Her obituary was on the front page of the Madison Courier, and the editor Michael Garber, Jr., noted, “She died at her post like a soldier.” The presentation will include many photos of local interest circa 1900 – 1920. Dr. Furnish, of Bloomington, IN works at Cook Medical.
