On offer are the 1972 - 1978 travel diaries of famed and noted Cornell University president Deane W. Malott. These journals are extraordinarily detailed, candid and well written - filled with fascinating, descriptive passages about all the places he visited. President Malott was no ordinary traveler and as such had remarkable access; a world renowned academic, author, editor, agrarian and business executive, he met, dined and worked with heads of state, potentates and corporate executives of the highest echelon. Sometimes he represented the IESC - International Executive Service Corps [he also called it the 'Paunch Patrol']. There are many hundreds of typed pages within two 11.5 inch x 1.75 inch three-ring binders. Paginated within sections, Malott and his wife Eleanor travel around the world and besides a keen eyed deluxe vision of the world there are tender personal section including copies of letters home to the family. While most of the trips are noted by country visited some of the travels are 'themed' multi-country trips as in the 'Wildflowers and Tropical Gardens' Tour or the Socialist Republics of Eastern Europe' Tour. At the beginning of Volume One there are a two [2] autograph letters mounted on thicker bond addressed to Harry W. Frantz, a correspondent for United Press in Washington with compliments on his own article on the Danube. Destinations include the Alps, Japan, Taiwan, New Zealand, the Outer Hebrides and of note there is a section titled: TO THE ARAB WORLD for the INTERNATIONAL EXECUTIVE SERVICE CORPS. He meets a lot of important people and dignitaries and has a lot of candid comments about the cultures. He traveled there during Watergate and watched it on TV in the Far East, and wondered why there were no American hippies in China. There is another section on the Voyage to Mayaluum on the MTS Argonaut under charter to Raymond and Whitcomb, and having dinner with President Chu. The author grew up in Kansas, was also assistant dean of the Harvard Business School, and vice president of the Hawaiian Pineapple Company. His wife grew up in Hawaii. Deane W. Malott is revered as one of Cornell's great leaders having implemented his vision of Cornell through acquiring new buildings and facilities totaling more than 100 million dollars. Research finds that while these were prepared for publishing but they were never published at all. VG+.
