The Medical History Society of New Jersey is pleased to host its 41st annual Morris Saffron Lecture, "Black Death at the Golden Gate," by David K. Randall, on Tuesday, October 27th at 7:00 pm, via Zoom.
In the early 20th-century, a bubonic plague outbreak threatened to overwhelm San Francisco. In response to this life-threatening disease emerging from China, public health officials raced to save lives and control the spread of the plague, while politicians downplayed the seriousness of the threat.
Montclair author David K. Randall will discuss Black Death at the Golden Gate, "a story of racism, science, and the race to save the country from a devastating disease." Though published in 2019, it could hardly be more timely.
