Tim Stephens and colleagues Jessica Taaffe and John Walsh at Prospero Analytics have been documenting the 1918 Influenza since the beginning of 2018, https://www. prosperoanalyticsllc.com/1918- onedayatatime/ They are creating a record, One Day at a Time, how the outbreak was reported in the American press. The press and Americans were subject to the Sedition and Espionage Acts during the Great War. The record describes fuel and food rationing, social and military regulation of the entertainment and sex industries, an unhealthy male population unready for war, and the hasty creation of new camps all across the country. Tim will present from the documentary record, and draw lessons for current pandemic planning.
