While attending a medical conference last week in Washington DC, Diana and I also spent some time with our friend Lin Zinser, Vice President of Public Outreach at the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights (ARC).
The ARC office is located in the heart of Washington DC, just a few blocks away from other think tanks, the National Press Club, the White House, etc:
Besides the usual office stuff (computers, phones, conference room), they had a few historical artifacts from the Ayn Rand Archives in California, such as these original pages from Rand’s hand-written draft of The Fountainhead:
Given the current political climate, I’m glad that they’ve been working hard to get Ayn Rand’s ideas circulated amongst the opinion-makers in DC. It’s hard to believe that they’ve only been in operation for only a year, and I’m looking forward to seeing the results of the second year of operation.
If you do wish to visit, call ahead first, as the staff there are busy!
Their address/phone number is:
The Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights
