Ayn Rand’s life is a demonstration that reality can be just as dramatic as fiction.
She lived a life worthy of one of her own characters and, fortunately, left behind an extensive record in the form of photographs, documents and other memorabilia.
Collected here is a sampling of memorabilia selected from the Ayn Rand Archives.
On occasion this collection will be expanded with new selections.
