1915-1945







Haiti 1945-1986



Haiti's post-war history was far from political stability : coups in 1946 and 1950, a very turbulent year 1957 which saw 6 different presidents in office. Then FRANCOIS DUVALIER (Papa Doc) established the Duvalier dictatorship, which was to last until 1986. In 1971, he was succeeded by his son JEAN CLAUDE DUVALIER (Baby Doc). His rule was enforced by the infamous TONTONS MAKOUTS, a militia which applied vicious methods against their victims, ensuring that no rebellion would be launched against the Duvaliers.
