In 1961, Ayn Rand received a speaking invitation from the Ford Hall Forum, a group that sponsors free public lectures on social and political issues. She spoke there almost every year until her death.

From 1982 to 2003 philosopher Leonard Peikoff continued that tradition. Over this period, Peikoff gave several talks in which he applied Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism on a wide range of topics such as education, medicine, the religious right, the fall of communism, art, crime and America’s response to 9/11.
