Harper

Harper
Harper, also known as Cape Palmas, is the capital of Maryland County in Liberia. It was an important administrative centre and home to Cuttington College, the oldest university in the nation, but it was largely destroyed in the Liberian Civil War. Boats sail from Harper to Monrovia via Greenville. One of the city's most famous sons is George Henry Andrews (1926-1997) Minister of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism under president William R. Tolbert, and Chairman of the Election Commission of 1997 that brought former warlord Charles Taylor to power. Harper is also the place of birth of William Tubman, president of Liberia between 1944 and 1971. Cape Palmas is considered to be the traditional hometown of the "Americo-Liberians", descendants of freed slaves from the United States who settled in Liberia and declared it an independent country in 1847.

Harry's very first recording "Sweet Red Rose" became a smash hit, making him front page, TV and Radio news for the next 6 months.... then, before he could reap any financial rewards or plan any development from this success, Civil War tore his country apart and left his world in ruins. Since then Harry has known only life as a UN refugee, displacement from home, family, friends & heartbreak. He hasn't been able to see his mother for 14 years (his Swedish father had already died when Harry was 9). Harry guesses that he may have cousins in Sweden, that he doesn't know and he wonders if they even know of him. Then in October 2002, Harry was told that his own son had died (the news came 3 weeks after the funeral) just as he was completing the "Hold On Tight!" CD album.
Help Liberia

Help Liberia Foundation is a non-governmental, not-for-profit, non-partisan, Christian charity organization that is established to assist the needy people of Liberia, especially the children who have become unfortunate as a result of the fourteen-year civil war. The Foundation was established in 2003 by Mr. Paul Yeenie Harry and Mrs. Anna Dobrowolska, a Polish citizen who is also the current President of the Board of the Foundation. Mr. Harry is a Liberian (currently residing in Poland), who himself lived in Liberia during the war, witnessing and personally experiencing the great human sufferings that characterized the Liberian civil war. The Foundationís headquarters is in Poland, but its humanitarian programs/activities are carried out in Liberia, where there is a branch of the foundation.

The movies on Per's website are quite large. He tried to keep them as smal as possible but there is a choice one has to make between image quality and file size. Per has some good tips how to view them.
Daniel Edward Howard
PRESIDENT

Daniel Edward Howard

(August 4, 1861-July 9, 1935)

Daniel Edward Howard was president of Liberia from 1912 to 1920. Born in the town of Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, he worked his way up through the civil service to become secretary of the True Whig Party, the country's only political party at the time.Howard was elected president in 1911 and assumed office on January 1, 1912. With the outbreak of World War I, he attempted to maintain the country's neutrality, though he tended to support the Allies, who colonial territories in Africa surrounded Liberia. Despite German protests, he allowed the French to operate a wireless station in the capital, Monrovia. Realizing that their complaints were in vain, the Germans sent a submarine to attack the city in 1917, forcing the reluctant Howard to side with the Allies and declare war on Germany. Howard remained in office for two years after the war's end. He died in Monrovia in 1935.
