VIRTUAL Happy Hour with the Historian | Yellow Fever in Key West

13-April from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM

The Key West Art & Historical Society is excited to offer a series of VIRTUAL fun historical lectures entitled ‘Happy Hour with the Historian’.

Historian: Cori Convertito Ph.D.
Topic: Yellow Fever in Key West

Join Cori Convertito, Curator for the Key West Art & Historical Society, for a virtual talk focusing on yellow fever in Key West.

This talk will explore the effects of yellow fever in the early days of Key West and the Florida Keys. Using many first hand accounts from the 1820s through the Spanish-American War, we gain an understanding of everyday life in the archipelago. Through the efforts of notable people, including Dr. Joseph Yates Porter and Dr. Mudd, residents began to understand the disease and how to bring it under control.

Happy Hour with the Historian is sponsored in part by The Helmerich Trust and the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs.
