As a part of his United Nations commission, Webb depicted educational and scientific endeavors across the continent. Here, a veterinary field worker in Tanganyika (Tanzania) practices using a vaccination syringe. Webb’s photograph emphasizes his calm attention to the task, a ray of sunlight highlighting his smooth brow, steady hands, and a spotless glass vial.
