The Pox, The Flux & Other Maladies

The Pox, The Flux and Other Maladies

              Guest Speaker: Steven Branting

                   Tuesday, April 25th @ 7:00P.M.

Pioneer towns of the Old West were far from healthy places in the days before antibiotics and emergency rooms. In the days when medical care that was crude at best, young and old alike faced accidental injury and death, water-born disease and uncontrollable epidemics. You could quite literally die of a broken finger. This presentation tells the stories of what it was like to get sick, suffer and die on the Idaho frontier, and how families cared for the dead in the days when undertakers were better furniture makers than morticians.

Steven Branting has been honored for the depth and variety of his research and field work by many of the nation*s premiere science, geography, history and preservation organizations, including NASA, the American Association for State and Local History, ESRI and the Society for American Archaeology. His popular series of Lewiston volumes has now reached five with the recent addition of Our Fruitful Dreams. The sixth and final volume --- Our Voices, Our Words --- is slated for release in September 2017.

This program is funded in part by the Idaho Humanities Council, a nonprofit organization that serves as the state-based affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
