Harold "Sonny" Waugh could have been a success story anywhere. He was born in Nassau in 1928, did his early school studies in the capital before travelling to Pennsylvania for higher education at Penn State. He returned home in the late 1940s and got immediately into the workforce. Up to 1955, he went about establishing himself in the New Providence job market, first with the Carlton House Hotel and also with Standard Plumbing Company. Then came the move to Grand Bahama and Waugh hasn't looked back since.
