Abstract

DR. R. P. STRONG states in his introduction that the Harvard African Expedition of 1926–27 was planned, first, for the purpose of making a biological and medical survey of Liberia, the interior of which even now, although within twelve days of Great Britain, is, as Sir Harry Johnson stated in 1906 in his book “Liberia”, still the least-known part of Africa; and secondly, to cross the continent from west to east, travelling particularly through the Belgian Congo. After the survey of Liberia was completed, the expedition proceeded by sea to the Congo and up that river to Stanleyville, continuing up the Lualaba to Kabalo, then eastward to Albertville on Lake Tanganyika, afterwards travelling northward via the Lakes Rift, and eventually reaching Mombasa by way of Lake Victoria and Nairobi.
