Ayn Rand (/n/; born Alisa Zinovyevna Rosenbaum; February 2[O.S. January 20]1905– March 6, 1982) was a Russian-American writer and philosopher. She is known for her two best-selling novels, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, and for developing a philosophical system she named Objectivism. Born and educated in Russia, she moved to the United States in 1926. She had a play produced on Broadway in 1935 and 1936.
