Lady Katharine Tait
Lady Katharine Jane Tait (née Russell; born 29 December 1923) is a British author and essayist. The daughter of Bertrand Russell and his second wife, Dora Black, she is a co-founder and Honorary Member of the Bertrand Russell Society. She has authored several essays about her father; as well as a book, My Father, Bertrand Russell, which was published in 1975.
Tait was initially educated at a progressive school operated by Bertrand Russell and his wife. After the closure of the school, Tait was educated at Dartington Hall. During the summer holidays of 1939, Tait went to visit her father in America, where he was lecturing. After the Second World War broke out she was unable to return to Britain. Russell found the local Californian schools far too pro-capitalist for his liking, so sent Tait to the University of California when she was 15 years old.
