State Department Documents, 1981-2017
Collection Description & Creator Information
The collection documents Paul D. Taylor's Foreign Service and State Department career, especially his service as U.S. ambassador to the Dominican Republic and as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Inter-American Affairs, in the form of correspondence, memoranda, speeches, and other materials. To a lesser extent, the collection includes materials related to Taylor's earlier diplomatic posts in Brazil, Spain, and Guatemala and his work for the U.S. Naval War College. Also of note are State Department documents obtained by Taylor through declassification requests, his collected writings and edited volumes (especially from his tenure at the Naval War College), and Taylor's letters to Richard Nixon opposing the bombing of Cambodia and correspondence related to Nixon's impeachment.
