    Medical doctor
    Minister of Labor (1946-50) and Public Health (1948-50)

    His official title was ‘President for Life, Maximum Chief of the Revolution, Apostle of National Unity, Benefactor of the Poor, Patron of Commerce and Industry and Electrifier of Souls.’
    He modeled his appearance on the voodoo death spirit, Baron Samedi, to make himself more threatening.
    He claimed to have placed a voodoo curse on John F. Kennedy that caused his assassination.
    His regime mass-distributed posters showing Jesus with his hand on Papa Doc’s shoulder, proclaiming, ‘I have chosen him.’
    His private secret police, the Tonton Macoutes, murdered 30,000 people during his reign.
    He headed a US sponsored campaign to eliminate the tropical disease yaws (1943).
    He was forced into hiding for opposing a military coup (1950).
    His corpse was dug up by a mob of Haitians and ritually beaten (1986) to ensure he would not rise on Judgment Day.
