Mr. Dunbar has many accolades to his credit. Currently, he is the managing attorney of the Tallahassee office of Dean, Mead & Dunbar law firm and is an honors graduate from the College of Law at Florida State University. For ten years, Mr. Dunbar served as a member of the Florida House of Representatives; and he served two terms as a member of the Florida Commission on Ethics and was the Commission’s Chair in 1999 and 2000. He is also the author of 5 books on community association housing, though his most recent book, Before They Were the Black Sheep, is a historical account of a Marine Corps fighter squadron during the Battle for the Solomon Islands in 1943.
Since 1997, the Institute on World War II and the Human Experience has striven to preserve the photographs, letters, and artifacts of service members and their families. They have enabled thousands of veterans to preserve their legacies of service and their collections of primary resources now totals almost 7,000. With the support of students and members of the Florida State community, they continue to pursue their goal of promoting the study of the Second World War.
