Title

NYT: Why Are There Almost No Memorials to the Flu of 1918?

Description

The New York Times business section writer David Segal examines the question of why the victims of the 1918 influenza pandemic have not been memorialized. He begins his story by describing a memorial that Brian Zecchinelli and his wife, Karen, erected in Barre's Hope Cemetery in 2018 to mark the 100th anniversary of the Wayside Restaurant and the 1918 epidemic.
