Typhoid Mary,

March 20, 1907

Mary Mallon is apprehended in New York. Known as Typhoid Mary, Mallon was the first recorded U.S. case of a healthy carrier of typhoid. She is suspected of directly infecting 51 people, three of whom died, with typhoid while working as a cook. She herself remained healthy. Outbreaks of typhoid followed her wherever she worked. She was put in quarantine for three years, but released when she promised not to work as a cook. However, after release she resumed working as a cook causing several more typhoid outbreaks. She was then put in quarantine for the remainder of her life.

I'd heard the name, didn't know anything about her though. Very interesting but kind of sad for her. (EOM) by Duncan Pohl #47371.2
