The University of Kentucky Libraries' Nunn Center for Oral History has several interviews with survivors of the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic; some of which were recently accessed by the New York Times for an in depth story on Philadelphia's infamously slow implementation of social distancing policies that could have helped slow the spread.  In our latest edition of WUKY's Award-Winning history series Saving Stories, Nunn Center director Dr. Doug Boyd plays first-hand accounts from flu survivors in Philadelphia and here in Kentucky.
