This volume presents the diaries of Taylor and Edith Belcher, who frequently travelled to Cyprus and also had close links to the University at Albany. Indeed, the University Library has a room commemorated as the Taylor and Edith Belcher Cyprus Room. The diaries of the Belchers document Cyprus at a critical time and provide witness accounts of contemporary Cypriot history. A respect and affection for the Cypriot people is conveyed. Also included are the official dispatches of Taylor, the Consul General, to the State Department.
