COVID-19 is not the first pandemic that Bryn Mawr College community members have experienced. As World War I was coming to an end, the world found itself facing a similar crisis with the outbreak of the Influenza Pandemic of 1918, sometimes referred to as the Spanish Flu. The College Archives holds records from both students and the college administration from 1918 which capture both the administrative decisions made during the pandemic and the effects of those decisions on some members of the Bryn Mawr community. This is a curated collection of digitized material from the College Archives; not all material related to the 1918 pandemic at Bryn Mawr is available online.
