Ayn Rand (1905 - 1982)
Ayn Rand was in Russia when the horrid Bolshevik Revolution began. She left Russia in 1926 and came to America, a country she greatly respected and adopted as her own. Rand, besides possessing esteemed literary skill, was a champion for individualism over collectivism, pure capitalism, and Man's ascent from barbarism.
