Babacar Ndiaye, president of the African Development Bank from 1985 to 1995, passed away in Dakar on June 13 at age 85. A tribute by Ambassador Harold E. Doley, Jr., the first U.S. Executive Director of the Bank, remembers Ndiaye as a titan of Africa, many of whose contributions remain unrecognized.
