Joseph Davilmar Théodore (1847–1917) was President of Haiti from 7 November 1914 to 22 February 1915. Born in the town of Ennery[citation needed] in the northern half of the country, he began his career in the military, and organized the cacao farmers of the north in the revolt against President Oreste Zamor. His inability to pay the farmers as he had promised for participating in the rebellion soon led to his resignation in favor of Jean Vilbrun Guillaume Sam. Théodore served as the President of the Senate of Haiti in 1910s.
