Mbuti tribesman Ota Benga committed suicide on March 20, 1920. He had been brought from what was then the Belgian Congo by missionary Samuel Phillips Verner to be on exhibit at the St. Louis World's Fair and later at the Bronx Zoo. Phillips Verner Bradford, the grandson of Verner, wrote a book on his life Ota Benga: The Pygmy in the Zoo (1992).
