NASSAU, BAHAMAS – On this day in Bahamian history, Sir Stafford Lofthouse Sands died in London, England in 1972. He was 59.

During the 1940s – 1960s the Bahamian businessman, lawyer and politician, who was born in The Bahamas, was a leading figure in modernizing the Bahamian economy.

His image was posthumously placed on $10 bill in 2001-2005 and again in 2010 to present.


Then in 2018, The Bahamas Historical Society hosted its lecture series Discover The Bahamas Again: Reconstructing Lucayan Lifeways by Dr. Michael Pateman.


In 2019, following the explosive Netflix and Hulu documentaries on the Fyre Festival scam, then Acting Customs Comptroller Dr. Gennine Moss said all customs duties related to the failed festival had already been collected, claiming black crab syndrome over The Bahamas portrayal on social media.


On January 25, 2021, then Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis announced his government’s intention to extend a State of Emergency put in place at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
