Bon Papa / Haiti's Golden Years: 1950s - Haitian Book Centre - Haitian Books in Creole, English and French, francophone litterature - Cliquer pour agrandir This is Haiti, pearl of the Antilles, during the presidency of General Paul E. (Bon Papa) Magloire. From 1950 to 1956, Haitians stood tall, and, as reported in the pages of the Haiti Sun newspaper, their country flourished. It was a time when the arts blossomed and tourists discovered a bewitching land with the friendliest people in the hemisphere; a time when President and Mrs. Magloire were wined and dined at the White House by President and Mrs. Eisenhower. The Haiti Sun's publisher, Bernard Diederich, who was also a correspondent for Time magazine, reported and photographed the period of Bon Papa. This volume recalls the days of the Haiti Sun - which was published from 1950 to 1963, until Diederich was imprisoned and exiled by Papa Doc Duvalier - reprinting some of its most illuminating articles and photographs. Diederich has tried to present a balanced and unbiased history of the Haiti of that period. Those who did not live through it will be surprised to learn of this other Haiti, the beautiful bygone Haiti whose future was full of promise.
