Maryn McKenna is a journalist who has written a great deal about 1918, first as a newspaper reporter and now as a freelance and also as a staff member at an infectious-disease website. She very kindly sent links to the stories written in 1998 about the Brevig Mission woman’s body that supplied the Taubenberger medical team with actual tissue samples from the 1918 influenza virus.

If you go all the way to the bottom there is a diary excerpt from 1918 (we need more first-hand accounts, diaries, oral histories, etc.)

There’s also a post by an Alaska-interested blogger here, about another victim account:
