Landlords Not to Evict Spanish Flu Patients

W.H. White, Jr., president of the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, urged landlords not to evict those infected with Spanish influenza, saying they had no authority to do so and added that any such evictions be reported to his office. That same day all Fulton County school children reported to class, got their books and some final instructions, then were sent home for the duration of the ban on public gathering announced the previous day.
