Lawrence Daily Journal World reports the first student death on campus

The first student to die from the influenza outbreak was Harlan Warren, a freshman from Delphos, Kansas, and a member of the S.A.T.C. He was sent to the University infirmary when the symptoms of a cold would not go away. Upon admission he was diagnosed with pneumonia. His family was notified, but they did not arrive in time. He passed away on October 14, 1918, at the age of 18. As with all other cases of influenza death, the cause was pneumonia.
