A Look Back in Time: Oct. 11, 1918

Now here's Sheridan Media's look back in time, to 100 years ago, by reporter Pat Blair as published in the Sheridan Enterprise newspaper on Oct. 11, 1918.

Public schools, theaters, pool halls, churches and all places of public gatherings will not be permitted to open until one week after the last case of Spanish influenza is reported in Sheridan. Dr. Anna G. Hurd, county health officer, made the announcement today. Seventeen new cases were reported to Dr. Hurd last night.

The Loyalty League has announced that the names of all persons who do not purchase as many Liberty Loan bonds as they're considered able will be made public.

More than 400 soldiers, sailors and drafted men passing through Sheridan last month were served by the Sheridan Red Cross Depot Canteen.
