Before starting his psychiatry practice in Dallas, Webb traveled around the world, returning on the SS Normandie to New York (1938). An amateur photographer, Webb documented this and subsequent foreign trips, later submitting some of his photographs to the Dallas Museum of Art.

He later became chief psychiatrist of the Veterans Administration clinic in Washington, DC, from 1946-1950.
