In the late 1860s Livingstone was ‘lost’ while searching for the source of the Nile. The New York Herald sent Henry Morton Stanley to find him. In November 1871 Stanley arrived at the village of Ujiji, on the east side of Lake Tanganyika: ‘I pushed back the crowds ... until I came in front of the ... white man with the grey beard. ... [I] walked deliberately to him, took off my hat, and said: “Dr. Livingstone, I presume?” “Yes,” said he, with a kind smile, lifting his cap slightly.’ (Text by Tom Tomlinson, from the exhibition catalogue: Objects of instruction : treasures of the School of Oriental and African Studies, Anna Contadini, Editor. London : SOAS, University of London, 2007.) ( en )
