West Who's Founder - John Farr

The Founding Father of West Who was John Farr.  He served as President, diplomat, and early leader of the Republic of West Who. He was a signer of the Federation Treaty between California micronations in the 1970s.
Farr was born into a family of educators in California, USA.  While attending school John Farr and fellow student Craig Carter established two nations independent of the United States in late 1969.  Later known as micronations, Farr was inspired by the founding of the Republic of Minerva in the South Pacific.  He organized the West Who government and served as president of the Republic for many years.  
Farr served as President of West Who from 1969 to 2013, though during the later years little was accomplished in his administration. A proponent of efficient government Farr worked to develop the Basic Law which became the constitution of the Republic of West Who.  President Farr was a key figure in the early stages of the development of the Republic of West Who. An educator and public figure in California, he played a leading role in persuading the West Who Congress to declare independence.  He designed the nation’s flag and was a strong proponent of the West Who Post Office.  Under his guidance the West Who Post Office has designed and printed stamps since the 1970s featuring prominent citizens, the history of West Who and its culture.
The Farr Administration negotiated the Federation Treaty, a treaty between several early micronations (Is-Was, Has Been, Now What, USSM) all located in California. After leaving office as President, John Farr was elected as Vice President of West Who.  Working closely with his successor President William Farr, his major diplomatic achievements were establishing relations with other micronations; creating a West Who presence on social media and attending MicroCon summits in Los Angeles, USA; Atlanta, USA; Toronto, Canada, and Las Vegas, USA.
