"bellevue stratford hotel" Discussed on The Atlas Obscura Podcast

"Of 2020, Luis Shah was thinking a lot about the pandemic. But not our pandemic. The influenza pandemic of 1918. Because Luis a curator of the CDC museum, and an early 2020, she was getting ready for an exhibit on how the 1918 pandemic shaped science and society. But then news started circulating at the CDC. News about a brand new virus. One called COVID-19. And that was when they had to change their plans. By early March 2020, it was really clear that we had to get on top of it. And it has been so different from anything that we have collected and documented in the past. The collection at the CDC museum, it's like a time capsule of every public health crisis that's happened in the last century. Take, for example, the polio exhibit. Wander over there, and you'll see a big hulking iron lung. Which is wonderful mayonnaise Barton Apia lived in for over 40 years. That, I think, is a crowd favorite. Then there's a glass jug filled with this noxious looking yellow water. And that water comes from the Bellevue Stratford hotel in Philadelphia. In 1976, bacteria in that hotel's HVAC system caused an outbreak of a mysterious respiratory illness at a convention of the American legion. The disease was dubbed legionnaires disease. The legionella branch had a big gallon jug of this killer water and we finally talked them out of it and we have it on display at the museum. And I say it's priceless, but it has no value at all. There's also exhibits on the obesity epidemic in the United States. And on the health impacts of secondhand smoking. And I do want to do a shout out for a smallpox eradication collection. We have probably the most stellar smallpox eradication collection anywhere. You can even try on a hazmat suit if that's the kind of thing that strikes your fancy. I mean, come on. But it's one thing to track down an old iron lung or charm your colleagues out of a murky jug of water years after the crisis has abated. It's something else entirely to collect artifacts from a pandemic, you're currently living through. We were doing a rapid response collecting kind of approach that we were trying to collect materials in real time. But rapid response collecting is a little bit like asking curators to peer into a crystal ball. You have to predict what objects people in the future will really connect with. Which ones will help them really understand what it was like to live through this crisis? So when reports about COVID-19 first started coming in, Luis sprang into action and cast a wide net. In early 2020, when a cruise ship called the diamond princess, had an outbreak on board, the museum approached first responders and quarantine passengers, and asked them, hey, do you have anything for us? In response, they got passenger correspondence, even a copy of a diary. And when CDC artists created the first medical illustration of the SARS CoV-2 virus, the museum nabbed one of the 3D models that they worked from. And of course, there was one object in particular that soon became a really big deal. One that reminded Luis a lot of 1918. There was the whole issue in 1918 about masking and there were mass shortages. So the Red Cross were doing like these events where it was women that joined together to make masks. Sounds familiar. Flash forward to the PPE shortages in the spring of 2020, and Americans are once again breaking out their sewing machines. And the museum made sure to collect some of those homemade masks. And as the CDC also rushed to certify the safety of new companies that wanted to manufacture N95 masks, the museum stashed away some of those that passed the CDC's muster. Luis says museum's first realized that they needed a rapid response collecting strategy after September 11th. Like people would put up a fly or have you seen my son or you have seen my mother, those kinds of things. And they were collecting the teddy bears at the sites. And it's a kind of collecting ephemera that if you don't collect it right at the moment, it might disappear. In 2014, the CDC museum put this new rapid response collecting into action with the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. And they knew they wanted to tell a story that was bigger than just the CDC's role. They wanted to represent all of the different perspectives in this collection that they were building, including artifacts from the community and religious leaders who stepped up to help fight the Ebola virus. We had aman and administer that actually shared copies of their Quran in the Bible that was mocked up with passages that documented why it was okay to have safe burial practices that were being recommended quarantine procedures. I will say in Ebola exhibit that was probably the most popular section of the entire exhibit. Included was a healer's bottle donated by the Sierra Leone indigenous traditional healers union. And it's wrapped with threads and cowry shells and was used to wash hands. The items showed that it wasn't enough for health officials just to promote safe practices. The messages also had to come from people who were trusted in their own communities. Rumors were an incredible issue in West Africa at the time, particularly early in the epidemic. Some people thought Ebola wasn't real. There was all sorts of things like, you know, this was purposeful, you know, people drinking bleach. That sounds sort of familiar, doesn't it? With the torrents of misinformation around COVID-19. The museum has had no trouble finding these kinds of artifacts to add to its collection. Things like anti vaccine posters. You might even say some of these artifacts come to them. Occasionally we'll have protesters in front of CDC and we have collected their materials. And they're sort of.

In the summer of 1976 the American Legion held its annual three day convention at the Bellevue Stratford Hotel in Philadelphia. Within two weeks, 182 people who attended were sick and 29 died.

A team of 20 CDC scientists joined state health workers. In scouring hospital records. An autopsy findings. By September. The government believe that fatalities could have been caused by bad food. In January 1977. Doctors confirmed the Legionella bacteria. Was breeding in the hotel's air conditioning system. Which was then spread throughout the building.

"Out my stand up once the deal with things who's what's the deal with you go to. Italy and this is a true story that has some people went to Italy that I know and they went to the store. They had a little kitchenette back there but they were staying and they wanted to have eggs Mary. They're used to looking in the refrigerator section for them. It could not find eggs so they finally went up to the person that was reading. The little star indeed have eggs or they made chicken noises or whatever they did to get the point across to them they wanted eggs and it looks yeah. We have eggs and pointed down like literally almost on the ground. There was a tiny war in the bottom of this set of drawers and in that exit. Not refrigerated no but the Americans where treated eggs like their rainy him. The hope diamond diamond gotta be stored link. You are so blurry I know it's because I actually vibrate at a higher frequency. I noticed that now. I'm a believer. He shows up in the camera. I'm leaving your reality and I moved into a higher plane. I'm GONNA Jonathan Livingston Seagull. Right out of the chair. And then you do. I'll gobsmacked course you will. Yeah the term. I don't know if you've ever read the book. Jonathan Livingston Assume Long. It's not but it seems like it is. It's the longest short book I've ever talked to give a whisk. No no no. We don't need a west West Virginia was for because it doesn't it doesn't break up properly when you shake but you see we have special instructions for the shaking of the egg white no of the dry shake. It says. Smashed the rattling. It says. Let's hang on combating combine ingredients in Shaker and shake without ice ten of the earth seconds and the ice and shit vigorously for at least ten seconds now. I told us a story on the show. One time I had an egg white drink one time at a cocktail bar now and it took a year to get a drink. I'm exaggerating for comedic purposes. But it was a long time because they shook and shook it and sugar they had to do a bunch of Shit to get into a very very fine phone. It came out and looked great. But you know you're getting sleepy. I did one where I think I think I get it on. Ice and it does not work well. It does not let me rephrase that does not work at all when you shake it with ice. Just want to stick together more. It says the other essential ingredient in this drink is the egg. White adds a luscious foam. Went to the drink because for a great finishing touch using Raspberry Syrup for this because we had said to. But today granny's can use in place of the Raspberry Syrup however Gary Gaz Regan advocates for Raspberry Syrup. The Joy of McNulty. Because without this drink is much to talk about well. Unless you've got good pomegranate Syrup I would I would say I guess I would say according to the old waldorf-astoria barbeque. The drink was first created at the bar of the Bellevue Stratford in Philadelphia which was popular. Hang out for literary legal financial and business lights of the quaker city during the late eighteen hundreds quaker city and says it's a rare treat among the classics because it makes us gin with a sweet flavor raspberry syrup creating the most delightful and very delicious drink. Now What's interesting though is that there's two versions of it. One that has vermouth and Monday does not have vermouth. And we're GONNA do it with Vermouth. Because Julie Reiner owner of the bar in Brooklyn called the clover. Oh did they invented. No but I think the clover club. The clover club existed for more than a century. Having been I introduced the Philadelphia's Bellevue Stratford hotels. Call it the clover club the club but she has a bar called the clover club and she wanted to have it on the menu and so she was mucking around with it. He's pretty good considering their season. Excellent she says her nuanced take on the famed pre Appro era recipe accommodation of Gen. Ed White Raspberry Lemon Simple Syrup and driver booth is a far cry. From many of today's Grenadine. Tenant examples known attempts are being overtly fruity and lacking and complexity but Reiner subtle changed the original formula chief among the addition of dry. Vermouth lend sophistication to historically crowd-pleasing drink which sounds like a bad thing to do. If it was historically crowd-pleasing yeah well we will. How are you going to fix that? We'll see what's right and a similar story. Disneyland just raised their ticket prices. Though we're going to going to price right out of the market says here. Ironically the choice to add. Vermouth is more in line. Cocktails history than many of others many of today's recipes with chest and she credits to our old friend. David one rich David longtime listener doesn't know a friend and neighbor to her in Brooklyn. I was here. She says playing around. I'll do it in. A fine voice was different specs. Six planes comes running in since. Oh this recipe for the club cocktail print and there was half an ounce of driving.
