CBC: This N.S. historian spent years researching the Spanish flu. Now she’s living in a pandemic. “When historian Ruth Holmes Whitehead started research in 2017 for a book looking at the Spanish flu outbreak in Nova Scotia a century prior, she had no idea she’d end up living in a pandemic. ‘It’s awful because you sort of automatically have this [bad] feeling … how this is going to turn out,’ said the author of Nova Scotia and the Great Influenza Pandemic, 1918-1920, which was published last November.”
