Biographical Note

Joan Kennedy Taylor was born in Manhattan on December 21st, 1926 to Joseph Deems Taylor and Mary Kennedy. Her father was a well-known composer and radio personality and her mother was an actress and a poet. After her parents divorced, Joan attended a number of schools in various parts of the world. She received her higher education at Barnard College where she met her husband, Donald Cook, who was a psychology student at neighboring Columbia University. The couple was engaged in 1947 and married a year after. In January of 1950 they welcomed their only son, Michael Cook. The marriage did not last and in 1953, Cook and Kennedy Taylor were divorced.
Shortly after the marriage ended she started working at Alfred A. Knopf in the publicity department and became closely entangled with the literary world. It was there that Kennedy Taylor was first introduced to Ayn Rand through the advance copy of Atlas Shrugged. Her fascination with the novel led her to write a fan letter to Rand sparking a life-long friendship.
In 1958 Joan Kennedy Taylor enrolled as one of the first students of the Nathaniel Branden Institute where she took a course on ‘Basic Principles of Objectivism.’ It is there that her friendship with David Dawson, a writer, turned into a romance. The two married later that year and remained married for over twenty years until Dawson’s death in 1979. By the mid 1960’s, amidst the 1964 presidential campaign, Kennedy Taylor became more interested in politics. It was also around this time that she helped found the Young Republicans Club in New York and served as the editor of the group’s newsletter. She was also responsible for transforming the newsletter into a libertarian magazine, Persuasion. Additionally, she worked alongside Roy A. Child, Jr., as an associate editor of The Libertarian Review. In the 1980s, Kennedy Taylor continued her writing career as the publication director at the Manhattan Institute where she was responsible for bringing to light the work of Charles Murray, a notable political scientist. While working at the institute she served as an editor of the Freeman magazine.
Kennedy Taylor’s list of accomplishments is extensive especially when it comes to her involvement in libertarian feminism and writing for notable publications such as: The Wall Street Journal, Washington Times, Reason, Inquiry, Success, American Enterprise, Stanford Law & Policy Review, and the Journal of Information Ethics . She wrote numerous monographs and articles and was a commentator for a nationally syndicated radio show, Byline. In 1992 Joan Kennedy Taylor wrote her first book entitled, Reclaiming the Mainstream: Individualist Feminism Rediscovered, and followed it with her 1999 publication, What to Do When you Don’t Want to Call the Cops: A Non-Adversarial Approach to Sexual Harassment. Joan Kennedy Taylor died on October 29th, 2005.
