Jackson Davis in Africa

Jackson Davis, at center, stands next to his wife, Corinne Davis, who is seated in a buggy on a street in Pointe-Noire, in the Middle Congo (later the Republic of Congo) in Africa. This photograph was probably taken in 1935, when Jackson Davis was studying conditions in Africa as a Carnegie visitor, with the support of the Carnegie Corporation. Davis returned to Africa in 1944 as head of a group sent by the Foreign Missions Conference of North America, the British Conference of Missions, and the Phelps-Stokes Fund.
