“This picture is based upon a photograph of a painting exhibited many years ago in the Paris Salon. It represents the crowning experiement of Dr. Edward Jenner, a famous English physician and the discoverer of vaccination. This experiment was performed on a boy who Jenner innoculated with matter taken from the hand of a milkmaid who had been directly infected by the cow. This was on the 14th of May, 1796, more than a century ago.” — Blaisedell, 1904
