Description:
The Sawyer family left Australia in January 1924, returning to New York via Ceylon, India, Egypt, and Europe. Dr. Sawyer, as the Rockefeller Foundation's assistant regional director for the East, spent the first part of the journey visiting RF hookworm control sites (and potential sites) in Ceylon and India, but combined this with sightseeing. He spent April 5-6 touring the river shrines along the Ganges in Benares. The caption on the back of the photograph reads, "Benares. Looking down the river toward Dasaswamedh Ghat. Apr. 6, 1924."
