Katharine Tait (1923–2021)

It was with great sadness that the Bertrand Russell Research Centre learned of the death on 26 July of Katharine Tait, Bertrand Russell’s daughter. Dr. Tait was a founder of the Bertrand Russell Society, attended several of its annual meetings, and was always strongly supportive of, and involved in, research and inquiry into the life, times and writings of her father. These scholarly interests and commitments extended to the McMaster edition of Russell’s Collected Papers, of whose Advisory Editorial Board she was a longstanding member. Kate herself wrote an important and poignant memoir of Russell; she was an always charming and friendly visitor to McMaster on those occasions she undertook work in the Russell Archives.
