A Country Doctor’s Journey to Fight the Flu Pandemic of 1918

The 1918 Spanish flu pandemic infected around 500 million people, about one-third of the world’s population, and is one of the deadliest pandemics in history. An early estimate from 1927 put global mortality at 21.6 million.

       Mary Beth Sartor Obermeyer, a  Mason City native, will relate stories of her grandfather, Dr. Pierre Sartor, who served the small Iowa town of Titonka during the flu epidemic.
