‎Stanley, né John Rowlands, eut une enfance difficile. Quittant l'Angleterre pour la Nouvelle-Orléans à l'âge de 18 ans, il y prit le nom de son bienfaiteur et père adoptif. Devenu journaliste au service du New York Herald, il partit en Afrique équatoriale à la recherche de Livingstone au cours d'une première expédition (1871-72) puis traversa l'Afrique d'est en ouest de 1874 à 1877. Après une troisième expédition au Congo au service de l'Association Africaine Internationale fondée par Léopold II, il revint en Angleterre où il s'occupa de questions coloniales à la Chambre des Communes.
