Dumarsais Estime and Paul Magloire

Here is a classic picture of Dumarsais Estime and Paul Magloire.

Dumarsais Estime was largely unable to deliver on his economic promises in Haiti during his government. In addition, the United States Government imposed strict tax controls.
In Haiti, large American companies associated labor officials to communists. In light of all these challenges, Dumarsais Estime issued a call to the Haitian people to sacrifice and help raise money. A popular national campaign became very effective with $7.6 million went towards debt payment.
