Caption: Henry Stanley (1841-1904). 1882 illustration of the Welsh journalist and explorer Henry Morton Stanley. Stanley was sent by the New York Herald in 1869 to find the Scottish missionary and explorer David Livingstone (1813-1873), who had not been heard from for several years. Stanley found the ill Livingstone in Ujiji, Tanzania, in 1871, and nursed him back to health. The two men then explored the north end of Lake Tanganyika. Stanley returned to Europe in 1872, but Livingstone stayed on and died on an expedition the next year. In later trips, Stanley explored the River Congo and helped found the Congo Free State.
