How can I find out whether there was a flu epidemic in Philadelphia in 1935-37?
My grandmother died *way* before I was born, and I know very little about her. She's said to have died in a flu epidemic in Philadelphia sometime around 1936, but I haven't been able to find any information on a flu epidemic there at that time. Any thoughts or ideas on how I could chase it down?
(Note: I have plenty of information on the Great Flu Epidemic of 1918. Since my father was born in 1926, I'm pretty sure that the 1918 epidemic is not the one my grandmother died in.)
