Yücel Dağlı
Yücel Dağlı (1963–2009). In 2009, we lost our dear friend and colleague Yücel Dağlı, who offered his technical expertise for the design and implementation of the original website from 2004 to 2009. Dağlı was a lecturer in the Department of Data and Document Management at Marmara University Faculty of Science and Literature from 2001 until 2009. He received his MA in Turkish language and literature from Istanbul University in 1994 for his work on Evliya Çelebi’s travels. From 1987 until 1996, he was the head of the Computer Department at the Ottoman Archive Office, and, from 1996 to 2000, he was a lecturer in the Archiving Department at Faculty of Literature at Istanbul University. Among many publications, Dağlı was the coeditor, with Robert Dankoff and Seyit Ali Kahraman, of the nine-volume edition of Evliya Çelebi Seyahatnâmesi, published by Yapi Kredi Publications from 1999 to 2006. He was one of the editors of the original Middle East Garden Traditions website and the author of the Historical Dictionary of Ottoman Turkish Terms for Gardens and Gardening, and was a member of the Ottoman Garden History Group with Nurhan Atasoy and Seyit Ali Kahraman. Yücel Dağlı is survived by his wife and two daughters.
