Abstract The CLEO II detector, located in Ithaca, New York, is an excellent tool for the study of the tau lepton. With a peak luminosity of about 3{times}10{sup 32} cm{sup {minus}2}s{sup {minus}1}, CESR (Cornell Electron-Positron Storage Ring) produces the highest luminosity of any {ital e}{sup +}{ital e}{sup {minus}} collider. Having accumulated about 4 fb{sup {minus}1} of data (approximately 3.6 million {tau} pairs), CLEO II boasts the worlds largest sample of tau events. The CLEO II detector allows for a spectrum of measurements, including measurements of the tau mass, lifetime, a wide variety branching fractions, suppressed decays, study of rare decays, and a limit on the tau neutrino mass. As a consequence, CLEO has made a significant contribution to our understanding of the tau lepton. With the approval of the symmetric and asymmetric B factories, our knowledge will continue to increase. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
