Philippe Sudre Dartiguenave, (1915 - 1922)

(Courtoisie et narration de Frankie Morone)
President Sudre Dartignave was really hand picked by the Marines over Dr. Rosalvo Bobo (who was a caco leader)and J.N.Leger(because he was too patriotic). As soon he was in office he was presented with a treaty and forced to sign it.The treaty provided for U.S. control of Customs - the establisment of a Haitian Gendarmerie, an American financial advisor(who witheld for a while the salary of the legislators)and an American aid in the development of sanitation and public work.
