Hours on weekends limited to UW badge holders.
Saturday, March 14, 2020
Ebling Library Historical Reading Room, Health Sciences Learning Center
Through photos, postcards, books, newspaper clippings, personal journals and clinical articles from Ebling's Rare Books & Special Collections, Staggering Losses conveys a narrative of medical care, casualty management, individual prowess, trench warfare realities, impactful weaponry, and a virulent virus that wreaked havoc on an ill-prepared population. My goal is to bring renewed attention to the impact of WW1 on the health care landscape and to honor millions through the mention of a handful.
