A portrait of British abolitionist Edmund. D. Morel sitting at a desk. E. D. Morel, a journalist and leading figure in the abolition movement, founded the Congo Reform Association and set up his own newspaper, The West African Mail, which publicised a campaign against slavery in the Congo. This photograph (Neg. 7) is from the Harris lantern slide collection. The photographs of Alice Seeley Harris and her husband John Harris constituted part of what was probably the first orchestrated multimedia campaign against widespread human rights abuses.
