Mary Mallon’s life, once it became known that she was a healthy carrier of Typhoid, is well-documented. Even today, we attached the moniker “Typhoid Mary” to describe a person who spreads illness or negativity in his or her wake. It’s a sad remembrance for a woman, who was described by friends and employers as a smart, kind person. Below are links to the books and sources used for this episode.
