About the Author


Zekiye Suleyman Eglar was born on December 10th, 1910 in Georgia, one of the 'little Russias' under the Czar. Her mother Lalendar was the daughter of a Georgian prince, and her father Suleyman Pasha, a general in the Czar's army, hailed from Azerbaijan. Their life in the southern Caucasus was strongly rooted in a Muslim cultural heritage. After the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 Suleyman Pasha took his family to the safety of Baku in Azerbaijan but died soon afterwards. The family moved to the newly independent Republic of Turkey around 1923. Kemal Ataturk honoured the family of the anti-communist Suleyman Pasha, a hero in Turkey, and bestowed the surname 'Eglar' (intelligence) upon Suleyman's family. Zekiye Suleyman Eglar died on 29 March 1983.

Young Zekiye attended the American Collegiate Institute where she later taught English, mathematics and manual arts, as well as cultural anthropology at Ankara University. She obtained her BA from the American College for Girls (later Roberts College) in Istanbul, a Masters in Education at Smith College for Women, and a PhD at Columbia University. Zekiye Suleyman Eglar died on 29 March 1983.
