VIRTUAL TALK: “War Fever” with Randy Roberts
May 10, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
Boston, Baseball, and America in the Shadow of the Great War
Boston 1918. The deadly Spanish flu spread. The streets emptied. The war raged on. The enemy seemed to be lurking everywhere: prowling in submarines off the coast of Cape Cod, arriving on passenger ships in the harbor. Anyone who looked or sounded German was suspect. A fever gripped the city and wouldn’t let go. Three memorable men lived during this delirious moment in history: Karl Muck, the German conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, was accused of being an enemy spy; Charles Whittlesey, a Harvard law graduate, became an unlikely hero in Europe; and Babe Ruth, who was poised to revolutionize the game he loved and become the most famous baseball player of all time. Together, they offer a gripping narrative of Boston, America at war and American culture in upheaval.
