Excerpt from Twentieth Century Practice, Vol. 15 of 20: An International Encyclopedia of Modern Medical Science

Influenza is an infections disease which in the highest degree appeals to our interest in many directions. It at times extends pandemically, with a velocity and wide spread such as we see in no other disease at present known. Numerous phenomena of its epidemiological behavior border on the miraculous, and fill us with wonder and astonishment. On the other hand, influenza in single cases produces so manifold and often such remarkable morbid pictures, that the study of the disease, though demanding great labor, brings a rich reward eventually. In the closing years of this century influenza has given us occasion to test all the modern attainments of medical science. Physicians have labored whole-souled in the attack against this pestiferous disease and they have also worked with such ardor in the solution of the riddle which confronted them, and they have endeavored to fathom it with such an ideal working together in all directions, that it may be truly said that influenza has become the teacher in many branches of medicine, and it has demonstrated to the whole world such thoroughness of methods on the part of physicians and investigators that our profession has a right to feel proud of its members.


With the discovery of the microorganism of influenza by R. Pfeiffer in the year 1892, a milestone was reached in the history of this disease. The obscurity which shrouded the epidemics of influenza of former centuries as regards the etiology and the epidemic character of the disease, will, thanks to the researches of this savant, be lifted from future epidemics.

In former times the occurrence of epidemics was referred to coincident natural phenomena, as the appearance of comets, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, etc., and even Webster attempted to prove this association in his work on the history of epidemic diseases.
