How did Pullman experience the First World War, the devastation of the Influenza pandemic, and the Centennial of Illinois?

1918 saw the end of the First World War, the deadly influenza epidemic, the erosion of civil liberties, and the Centennial of the State of Illinois. See how Pullman residents and employees fared during this terrible and turbulent year.

Join Historic Pullman Foundation and Pullman historian and resident Andy Bullen for an exploration of the town of Pullman in 1918.We will examine contemporary records and articles to try and understand what Pullman– and by extension, the United States — was experiencing. We will also visit the official opera written expressly for the Centennial starring none other than Florence Pullman Lowden.

Members attend FREE, but please register so we know how many people to expect.

Join Historic Pullman Foundation at these casual presentations on the fifth Sunday of the Month. This series is a chance to learn more in-depth about Pullman history (the man, the town, the company).
