Sir Henry Morton Stanley (né John Rowlands) est un journaliste britannique né le 28 janvier 1841 à Dinbych dans le Denbighshire et mort le 10 mai 1904.

Son père était fermier et s'appelait John Rowlands. Tôt orphelin, il embarque, à l'âge de 15 ans, comme mousse pour l'Amérique. Il débarque à La Nouvelle-Orléans et est adopté par un riche négociant nommé Stanley, qui lui donne son patronyme. Il participe ensuite à la guerre de Sécession comme soldat sudiste avant de devenir le correspondant de divers journaux en Asie mineure et en Abyssinie (Éthiopie).

Comment j'ai retrouvé Livingstone

Sa réputation grandit et, en 1869, le rédacteur en chef du New York Herald l'envoie à nouveau en Afrique équatoriale, avec pour mission de retrouver David Livingstone, parti à la recherche de la source du Nil et porté disparu, afin de réaliser un formidable scoop ! Il lui faudra de longs mois pour découvrir le célèbre explorateur. Il y parviendra le 10 novembre 1871.

Sir Henry Morton Stanley , GCB, born John Rowlands (January 28, 1841 – May 10, 1904), was a Britishjournalist and explorer famous for his exploration of Africa and his search for David Livingstone. Stanley is often remembered for the words uttered to Livingstone upon finding him: "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?", although there is some question as to authenticity of this now famous greeting.

Biography

Stanley was born in Denbigh, Wales. At the time, his mother, Elizabeth Parry, was nineteen years old. According to Stanley himself, his father, John Rowlands, was an alcoholic; there is some doubt as to his true parentage. His parents were unmarried, so his birth certificate refers to him as a bastard, and the stigma of illegitimacy weighed heavily upon him all his life. He was raised by his grandfather until the age of five. When his guardian died, Stanley stayed at first with cousins and nieces for a short time, but was eventually sent to St. Asaph Union Workhouse for the poor, where overcrowding and lack of supervision resulted in frequent abuse by the older boys. When he was ten, his mother and two siblings stayed for a short while in this workhouse, without Stanley realizing who they were. He stayed until the age of 15. After completing an elementary education, he was employed as a pupil teacher in a National School. In 1859, at the age of 18, he made his passage to the United States in search of a new life. Upon arriving in New Orleans, he absconded from his boat. According to his own declarations, he became friendly with a wealthy trader named Stanley, by accident: he saw Stanley sitting on a chair outside his store and asked him if he had any job opening for a person such as himself. However, he did so in the British style, "Do you want a boy, sir?" As it happened, the childless man had indeed
