As we mark one year since the COVID-19 pandemic brought the world to a halt, ALPLM Chief of Acquisitions Ian Hunt takes us back in time for a closer look at previous pandemics, epidemics and other major health crisis. Ian will show rare items from our collection – including those from the “Black Plague,” the years leading up to and during the Civil War, the devastating 1918  pandemic, and the AIDS epidemic – to tell the story of how pandemics and other health issues of the past impacted Illinois, the nation, and the world.
