Floyd H. Black taught at Robert College in Istanbul, Turkey (1911-1925), and eventually served as its president (1944-1955). Prior to World War II, Black was president of the American College of Sofia, Bulgaria (1926-1942), and during the war served as special assistant to the United States consul in Istanbul.
