      SAN FRANCISCO, EPIDEMIC: 1918 Flu epidemic. When the board ordered San Francisco residents to don face masks out in public, however, the Chronicle blanketed its front page with pictures of prominent citizens with their faces covered. “Great Variety in Styles of Face Adornment in Evidence,” read a headline. That was Oct. 25. (Ironically, the masks were not effective; the virus was so small that it could pass through gauze.) 20 - 40 million people died in the 1918 flu epidemic.
