Who Was Typhoid Mary?

Popular Chautauqua Star Leslie Goddard (we’ve seen her most recently as Jackie Kennedy) returns to our Zoom arena with this fascinating illustrated Talk about the famous asymptomatic carrier of typhoid twice forcibly quarantined by authorities, and died after a total of nearly three decades in quarantine. What a story to tell!
