March 15 - Please join students, colleagues, and friends of Lionel Trilling Professor Emeritus in the Humanities Ted Tayler (1931–2018) as they share memories of his effect on their lives.

As a professor in the Department of English and Comparative Literature from 1960 to 1999, Tayler won multiple awards for his Shakespeare and Renaissance poetry classes. He created and directed the Logic and Rhetoric course that taught students to think while pretending to teach them to write.

For questions, or if you would like to send your reminiscences about Ted, please contact Ria Coyne at rmc12@columbia.edu. You can see what others have shared here.
