From 1935 to 1936, he traveled around the United States with his friend Chalmers M. Roberts, which he described in a book entitled "The Trek: or, Adventures in Depression America." Friendly was hired as a reporter for the Washington Daily News (later the Washington Post) until World War II, when he served in the Military Intelligence Service. He helped to transform The Washington Post into a national publication while serving as its managing editor (1955-1965). From his retirement as managing editor until 1971, Friendly worked as a roving reporter for the Post and won a Pulitzer Prize in journalism for his coverage of the 1967 Arab-Israeli War.

Photographs made by William F. Wheeler during his expeditions to Africa in July 1986, 1987, 1988, 1990, 1993, 1994, 1996, and 1998, mostly documenting the Efe of Akokora in the Ituri forest. Photographs relating to the Efe people of Akokora in the Ituri forest include images of Efe people, camps, musical instruments, dances, archery and poison arrows, hunting, barkcloth making and use, body marking, food, animals and plants of the rainforest, forest treks, villages (including Anduli, Dui, and Akokora). Other photographs include images of ceremonies (including an Olngesherr ceremony in the Loita Hills), Mbuti at Epulu, a Masai village in Kenya, William Wheeler's wedding to Linda Penn in a Masai village (1987), Berber nomads and scenic views in Algeria, markets and Tuaregs during a camel trip through Niger, and aerial views.
Biographical/Historical note:
William F. Wheeler (1943-2008) was born in Blackville, South Carolina, and earned a medical degree from Duke University and a specialty degree in anesthesiology at Massachusetts General in Boston. In 1978, after years of practicing medicine, he began traveling Africa by car, making over twenty-four trips during the next three decades. To gain a more intimate experience, he returned to explore the most remote places on foot. His detailed safari journals, written in the style of 19th century explorers, describe camel journeys in the Sahara, foot safaris with Maasai in Kenya and Tanzania, and hundreds of miles of treks with Efe through the rainforest of the Ituri river basin, a tributary of the Congo River. Wheeler's collection of artifacts and photographs formed the basis of a 2004 exhibit at the San Diego Museum of Man.

Scope and Contents:
"Mbuti women will spend hours gathering the abundant tubers and Dioscorea spp yams. Wild tubers are definitely not a preferred food, they are unpalatable, laborious to prepare. Great care must taken in selecting wild tubers; as although 'Njatu' and 'Kocho' are very similar in appearance, 'Kocho' contains deadly concentrations of the bitter-poison hydrocyanic acid." [Wilkie, D. S., 1988: Hunters and Farmers of the African Forest. University of California Press, Berkeley]. During his trip to Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo), Elisofon visited the Mbuti people at Epulu, South East Ituri Forest region. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for National Geographic Film and traveled to Africa from January 19, 1972 to mid April 1972.

Scope and Contents:
"According to Patrick and Anne Putman, Mbuti art, both on the body and on bark cloth, is of purely aesthetic nature, without magical significance. Certain facial scarifications may indicate the membership of a clan. Elsewhere the design owes more to the artist's imagination than to any agreed subject." [Meurant G., Farris thompson R., 1995: Mbuti Design, Thames and Hudson Inc.]. During his trip to Congo (now Democratic Republic of Congo), Elisofon visited the Mbuti people near Beni, South East Ituri Forest region. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon traveled to Africa from March 17, 1970 to July 17, 1970.
