The Flu Claims a "Flying A" Actor


Harold Lockwood had been a leading man, and had appeared in more than a dozen movies produced by the studio here in 1915 and 1916. In October 1918, the 29-year-old actor came down with the "Spanish Flu" while in New York, and died of pneumonia three days later. (Most of the deaths caused by the 1918-1919 flu were among people in the 20-40 age range.)
