The Ayn Rand Letter - Contents by Author

The Ayn Rand Letter was published monthly from October 1971 to February 1976. It was rather different in format from its predecessors (The Objectivist Newsletter and The Objectivist). It presented a single major article per issue, in the style of a typewritten letter. It was originally published fortnightly, but Rand's ill health caused the letter to become increasingly behind schedule, ultimately having issues dated for September 1974 but published in mid-1975. In 1975 the The Ayn Rand Letter officially went to a monthly schedule, promptly dropped to a bi-monthly schedule, and then ceased publication. Rand was the publisher, editor and the author of most of the articles, although Leonard Peikoff contributed some articles as well.

The table below lists every named individual who wrote items published in The Ayn Rand Letter (alphabetically with last name first), followed by the titles of those items and the issue date (chronologically), and volume/issue number. (For more details about how these listings are organized, read the notes.)
