Henry M. Stanley (white hair) and others on a train. Historical artwork of the Weslh-American journalist and explorer Sir Henry Morton Stanley (1841-1904). In 1869 Stanley was sent by the New York Herald to find the Scottish missionary and explorer Dr 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. In later trips, Stanley followed the River Congo to the sea and helped found the Congo Free State (now the Republic of Zaire).
