Sir Henry Morton Stanley, (1841-1904), Anglo- American journalist and explorer. Stanley was sent to find the Scottish missionary and explorer Dr David Livingstone (1813-1873) by the New York Herald in 1869, as he 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 followed the River Congo to the sea and helped to found the Congo Free State (now the Republic of Zaire).
