Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains lantern slides published by the London Missionary Society regarding David Livingstone, the noted explorer and medical missionary who traveled to Africa in the 19th century. The lantern slides in this collection depict Livingstone's life in color illustrations, and are accompanied by a pamphlet that provides descriptions of the slides. The collection also includes a handwritten piece on David Livingstone by an unknown author.
David Livingstone was a Scottish Congregationalist known for his missionary work and exploration of Africa in the 19th century. Born in 1813, Livingstone joined the London Missionary Society in the 1830s and began his work in Africa, traveling extensively throughout central and southern Africa as a medical missionary. He was a staunch abolitionist, and sought to end the East African Arab-Swahili slave trade though his influence as a national hero in late 19th century Britain.
