Description: Veterinarians are vital in the farming and dairy communities. In this photograph, Joe Munroe captures Dr. Saylor as he and a farmer help to dislodge a dairy calf that has become stuck during birth. A neighbor and the farmer use a rope to pull the calf while the veterinarian guides the calf out. Joe Munroe's career began in 1939 at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. He served in the Air Force during World War II and then joined Cincinnati-based Farm Quarterly magazine. Though raised in Detroit, agriculture became an important subject of Joe's photographs. He moved to California in 1955 and free-lanced, taking magazine assignments and selling his own work. View on Ohio Memory.
