History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Edward W. "Ted" Tayler was the Lionel Trilling Professor in the Humanities Emeritus and special lecturer in English and comparative literature. He passed away on April 23, 2018 at the age of 87. A Shakespeare and Milton scholar, Tayler — who specialized in poetry and prose of the 16th and 17th centuries — began teaching at Columbia in 1960 after completing a B.A. from Amherst College and a Ph.D. in English from Stanford University. While at Columbia, Tayler developed "Logic and Rhetoric," the predecessor to the Core Curriculum's "University Writing" course that is required of all Columbia College students. Tayler was known not only for his scholarship but also for his teaching, influencing countless students, including Tony Kushner CC '78, the playwright best known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning play Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes.
