Sir Henry Morton Stanley (1841-1904), Explorer and journalist
Dorothy Stanley wrote an effective description of her (future) husband’s appearance in middle-age:
His thick grey hair lies flat and smooth, rather thatch-like … near silver white; his thick throat supports a splendidly shaped head, broad … and well-developed.… His forehead is square, his eyes are very remarkable … they make you sincere, they demand of you your very self.… His mouth is partly concealed by a grizzly moustache … the nether lip is masterful and determined.… His face is somewhat marked by exposure to the sun, by fever, by responsibility, by anxiety.… His eyes look tender and sorrowful.… He uses his hands very much when talking.… What seized me when I first saw him … is his powerfulness.… Mother felt it also.
