Delia Denning Akeley was one of the most renowned African explorers of the early 1900's. Her works appeared in the The Field Museum of Chicago, the American Museum of Natural History and the Brooklyn Museum of Arts and Sciences. She is credited with having slain the largest elephant ever taken out of Africa. She was one of the earliest persons to study the habits of the jungle species, including: crocodiles, baboons, monkeys and elephants. She was the first 'white-person' to live among the pygmy tribes in the deepest heart of Africa, in order to study their tribal customs.
