Period Paper is pleased to present a collection depicting the journey of Henry M. Stanley, Arthur Jephson, Thomas Parke, Robert Nelson, and William Stairs on their trek to rescue Emin Pasha (German-born Isaak Eduard Schnitzer) from the interior of Africa. The rescue came to be known as the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition and lasted from 1886 to 1889 by carving up the Congo River and traversing through the Ituri Forest of the Congo. Pasha, a naturalist and doctor, had been the governor of Equatoria, but was caught up in the Mahdist uprising of 1885.
