About the Event

Patricia is the specialist curator for  faith, religion, and WWI at the World War I Museum and  Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri. Camp Funston is located at Fort Riley near Junction City,  Kansas. It was the largest of 16 divisional training camps  built during World War I to house and train soldiers. The  camp was also the site of the first outbreak of influenza  during the pandemic of 1917-18. Existing in a unique  place and time, the story of the camp offers a look at how  individual and collective responses to faith gripped the  world.
