I had the very great pleasure of becoming acquainted with Dr Tarr when he was living in Savannah, Ga where I work in the dealership where he serviced his car. I count as one of my most treasured possessions the personalized copy of "Private Soldier" he gave to me when he learned of my interest in the history of American armed forces in WWII. He was always so friendly, kind and respectful to me - I hold a bachelors degree in history and work in a car dealership and you know his resume, yet he always spoke with me as an equal.
We have lost a true gentleman and scholar; the likes of which, sadly, we see less and less.

Few people at the State department know that what began as the Undersecretary for Security Assistance (and now has morphed into a high falutin list of items, science, technology,etc.)and is designated as T, is so named for Curtis Tarr, who was the first such undersecretary and set the standards for export controls and FMS. He is undoubtedly the only guy at State that has ever had a bureau named after him. It is a fitting obituary for a capable man, even though very few people have a clue of its origins. John A. Shaw, Former Inspector General of Foreign Assistance at State.
