A friend of mine just gave me this photograph, below, from (I am guessing) the late 1970s. Two people in this picture are happy. Who is the man on the right? I feel I know him, but I can’t identify him. Clearly he must have outlasted Duvalier in Port-au-Prince, because I only arrived a week before Baby Doc left in 1986, and I would not recall the face of someone who had fled along with Jean-Claude.
Who is that mystery man?
Also note: That’s not Baby Doc’s most trusting face. However, if you look at pictures of him over the years, you’ll notice that the guy didn’t really have a look that said “I trust these people.” I wonder why…
Here’s one picture:
