Today is Ayn Rand’s birthday, but the Libertarian Tradition podcast dedicated two episodes to Rand last month. Today we learn about her friend and (as it turns out) her mentor, Isabel Paterson (1886–1961). Paterson was a journalist, author, political philosopher, and a leading literary critic of her day. Along with Rose Wilder Lane and Ayn Rand, she is one of the three founding mothers of American libertarianism.
