NB: International observers agreed that LAP’s presidential candidate Jackson Doe won the 1985 elections. He was so kind to grant me permission to reproduce it here. Elwood Dunn is one of Liberia’s most distinguished historians and educators and a prolific author.

Stephen Byron Tarr was interred in his home village of Zondo, Grand Bassa County on October 21. He is an Emeritus Professor of Political Science (University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee).

I was visiting his home when he informed the President Pro Tempore of the Senate of his health inability and thus his decline of the offer.

Byron and I collaborated on a wide range of issues related to our country, among them the Vision 2030 exercise and CERPS. We even co-authored a book, Liberia: A National Polity in Transition (Published 1988). It is even ironic that the controversy of his access to the Liberian archive in 1965 pales when compared to the holdings he has donated to Indiana University, holdings that any government in Liberia has access to in part of in whole.
