Scope and Contents note:
Relates to the conversation Glave had with Herbert Ward, traveler, artist and member of the Rear Guard, relating to the Rear Guard and Major Barttelot's conduct. "I, not having been an officer of that expedition, could say nothing from personal experience, but the spirit of Ward's conversation at all times, condemned Major Barttelot's mismanagement at Yambuya-- his harsh inhuman treatment of the Zanzibaris & Soudanes, who were lashed up and flogged for the feeblest offence, his inconsistent, high-handed and tactless dealings with Tippu Tib & his tyrannical behavior to the other white officers of the Rear Column were often mentioned."
General note:
Witnessed by Ritchie and Pond.

Includes correspondence, drafts of publications, diaries, account books, ephemera, posters, newsclippings, biographies, memoirs, portraits, and the former personal property of selected explorers, big game hunters, missionaries, pioneers, and naturalists in Africa.

Besides Roosevelt, the major persons represented in the Collection include the journalist and explorer Henry Morton Stanley and members of his Emin Pasha Relief Expedition (Thomas Heazle Parke, Robert H.
