Welsh journalist, politician and explorer who opened Africa. A child born in shame as his mom was unmarried, he became a writer. In May 1871 he began his search for Dr. Livingstone in Africa to report the story. After five months in the untracked jungles, when finding the man, he delivered the famous, anecdotal line, "Dr. Livingstone I presume?" He stayed with Livingstone until March 1872, trying to persuade him to return to civilization. When Livingstone died in 1874, Stanley returned to Africa to carry on his work.
He died 5/10/1904, London, England.
Steinbrecher quotes the date from Sir Stanley's coffin plate and the time from NN No.248. Garth Allen gives the same date in Kosmos Vol 7 No.2 with a time of 5:20 AM.
NN No.003 has an alternate date, January 28, 1841. Old Moore 7/1908 has the same from Raphael's Almanac "given 20 years ago with the time of 5:00 to 6:00 AM, rectified to 5:02 AM." Denbighshire, Wales has also been suggested as the birth location.
