Salih Munir Pasha, (1859-1939), was one of the grandchildren of the grand vizier Çorlulu Ali Pasha. His father is Mahmud Celaleddin Pasha, Minister of Nafia and Trade. He was promoted rapidly in his public service career during the reign of Abdulhamid II. After having great success in the Ottoman Foreign Ministry, he was appointed as an ambassador to Paris and upheld the position for more than 13 years. At the same time, he was in charge of the embassies in Brussels and Bern. He was in charge of highly significant missions during his embassies such as preventing the activities of the Young Turks and assuring their return to the homeland, facilitating the establishment of the Balkan alliance and Macedonian affair. He was removed from his post after the declaration of the Second Constitutional Period. From that date on, he struggled to regain his reputation. Salih Munir Pasha focused on his intellectual studies after returning to Turkey in 1925 until his death in 1939. He wrote a lot of books and articles within this period.
