Joan Kennedy Taylor

Joan Kennedy Taylor, one-time associate of Ayn Rand, passed away October 29, 2005. (as reported here and here) Ms. Taylor is probably best known for her work: Reclaiming the Mainstream: Individualist Feminism Rediscovered. She also contributed an essay to Feminist Interpretations of Ayn Rand, edited by Chris Sciabarra and Mimi Gladstein.
Ms. Taylor was interviewed in 2004 for The Objectivist History Project. In the interview, she recalled her first meeting with Rand and the surprising role that many early students of Objectivism played in bringing about the end of the military draft.
On a personal note, I had the opportunity to speak with Ms. Taylor while we waited for flights after TOC’s 2004 Summer Seminar in Vancouver. We spoke more about her association with Rand—of whom she had warm memories. I wish I had known Ms. Taylor better; she will be greatly missed.
