This site is run by Sam's son Konrad (aka Kondi) Haskins.
It is my personal way to share memories of my father. Sam Haskins was a wonderful father with a rich life story. My goal is with time to offer a glimpse at the real Sam Haskins that I knew. Sam came from very provincial roots in South Africa with his own father working and retiring from the Rail Road. He ended up in his final days with an exhibition of his work in New York City sponsored by Tommy Hilfiger and featured on CNN. I was around for most of that journey and it's a story worth sharing. There is biography here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Haskins . The Wikipedia entry talks about Sam's son running his website, for clarification that is my brother not me. These are my personal memories of Sam and it will always be a work in progress.
