The Belgians portrayed themselves in the museum, too.  This is Albert Thys (1849-1915), who also participated in Stanley's later expeditions but stayed on as a businessman, founding the Congo Company for Trade and Industry in 1886 and serving for nine years as the administrator of the Company of Katanga.  Thys also recommended construction of the Matadi-Leopoldville railroad, which was completed in 1898.  South of Leopoldville, a railway maintenance center (now Mbanza-Ngungu) was named Thysville in his honor.
