Jean Vilbrun Guillame Sam

Jean Vilbrun Guillame Sam was President of Haiti in the early 20th century.

Sam was the fifth president since General Lecomte's death in 1912. He saw the assassination of Lecomte by followers of Tancred Auguste, who blew up the palace to conceal that he had been murdered.

General Bobo was the leader of forces opposing Sam. When Bobo's forces invaded the new Presidential Palace in July 1915, Sam killed himself before he could be assassinated. (PROSE: White Darkness)
