1873: David Livingstone, the Scottish missionary and explorer of Africa whose 1871 meeting with Welsh-American journalist and explorer H. M. Stanley gave rise to the popular quotation "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?," dies at the age of 60 in North-Eastern Rhodesia from malaria and internal bleeding caused by dysentery.
