Chip Blake: Looking at public response to past pandemics for Fowler Science Series
Associate Professor of History Dr. Chip Blake has studied the response to epidemics in Brazil, including smallpox, yellow fever and the deadly influenza pandemic of 1918. History has some lessons to share, which he passed on to Lima City School students participating in the William Fowler Science Series.
“The scientific and medical research of the late 19th century, particularly bacteriology, provided an understanding of the causes and means of transmission of many diseases. These new understandings of diseases led to the development of effective public health measures to prevent those diseases,” Blake said. “These same methods of preventing and controlling the spread of epidemic diseases are as effective today as they were in 1920.”
Blake’s research interests include race and national identity in Latin America, Latin American social and political history, and the history of medicine and public health in the Americas. Read more.
