Rowntree, York, and the 1918 flu pandemic 

Catherine Oakley

Catherine is one of our members, and Executive Director of the Rowntree Society. This Zoom talk looks at the local effects of the 1918 - 1919 flu pandemic in York, and the responses to it by Rowntree’s, as a family and as an employer.

Catherine is preparing a series of blog posts about a pandemic that resonates as we experience Covid-19. The first two posts are on the Rowntree Society website, and you can read them here.
