James Bruce

Dec 14, 1730 - Apr 27, 1794

James Bruce of Kinnaird was a Scottish traveller and travel writer who spent more than a dozen years in North Africa and Ethiopia. He claimed to be the first European to trace the origins of the Blue Nile, but his claim was false; the credit goes to Father Pedro Paez, who found it in 1618.
