The family and friends have my deepest sympathy. Mr. Tarr was trying to make things equal for all persons. We await the time when all men will truly be equal under the eyes of God. Until that time we appreciate persons like Mr. Tarr.

May your memories of your family member give you strength in your loss. I did not know of Mr. Tarr, but am encouraged by his sense of responsibility and humanity as stated by others here. God's Blessings to his family and friends. May his humility be upheld by any who have undaunting tasks and jobs to do. May others who are so well educated learn from the example he lived and treat all as an equal. An admirer of a fine gentleman and American who served well. Rest well, faithful one.

My sincere condolences to the Tarr family. I was 18 in 1970 and just graduated from high school. My draft lottery number was 72 and I knew that I would be drafted. This spurred me to enlist in the Air Force. I served my country and went overseas to Germany. When my Air Force tour was over I was ready for college and had the proper motivation I probably would not have had in 1970. I earned two BA degrees and two Masters degrees and went back into the Air Force Reserve and served over 30 more years. I was fortunate to have had to make hard decisions at an early age but is has turned out very well. Thank you, Mr. Tarr!

Your father was an amazing man. He gave us a personal tour of Lawrence University when he was president. My dad has such fond stories of him from their time at Stanford and after. It was nice to see him at my mother's funeral. What an amazing legacy he has left.

Dr. Tarr was on the board of a non-profit I worked for in Savannah. In addition to his professional and educational accomplishments he was also an artist. He studied Shakespeare, did pen and ink drawings of his many travels, and was an accomplished writer. He was a true renaissance man.

To Curtis Tarr, I never new who you where but I am thankful for your wisdom and foresight as to the lottery system of the draft. I was #38 and was drafted in 1971. The result of those events changed my life for ever and it was a positive change. I grew through my military experience in a ways I would most likely never would have. I truly thank you Sir.

Again we want to send our symapthy to you and your family.

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.

My condolences on your loss, Pam. I was born in 1952 and in the 1971 lottery held in July my birthday of March 14 was #203. I had enlisted in January assuming I would get a low number and would be drafted anyway but they didn't get anywhere near #203. Oh well, it was a good experience anyway and I didn't have to go to Nam. May your father rest in peace.
