Title:
Wilbur A. Sawyer alighting from a bullock cart, Weligama Rest House, Ceylon
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 visited Weligama to discuss a hookworm control campaign for that area with local physicians. The caption on the back of the photograph reads, "W.A.S. alighting from the bullock cart, Wiligama Rest House. Mar. 3, 1924."
