Abstract

The passing of Rolandos Katsiaounis on June 30, 2014 was deeply
saddening and shocking, even though I knew of his illness. Naturally
many memories flooded back for me. I had first written to Rolandos when
as a Ph.D. candidate I was planning my research trip to Cyprus in 2002.
I wrote to him about wanting to visit the State Archive in Cyprus to look
for documents on the strategic role of Cyprus during the first five or so
decades of British rule (i.e., 1878–1925). In his customary blunt way,
Rolandos replied that I would find no documents on this subject there.
He was, to my happiness and excitement, wrong and my own personal
discovery of this archive would bring us together and result in one thing
we had in common beyond being historians, our love of this archive.
