The public is invited to the next meeting of the San Juan Basin Archaeological Society, to be held on Wednesday, April 11, at 7 p.m. at the Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College.
Charles DiFerdinando will speak about the 1917-1918 flu epidemic and how the Durango-Silverton train helped it spread. A social will be held before the meeting at 6:30 p.m.
DiFerdinando is a fifth-generation Durango native who has been involved with the La Plata County Historical Society since almost its inception. He did building research for the Main Avenue Historic District and wrote the National Register Nomination for the East Third Avenue Boulevard Historic District.
DiFerdinando worked at the Animas Museum and rebuilt the Joy Cabin, the oldest building in Durango.
