Robert E. Taylor, Ph.D.
ROBERT E. TAYLOR, who is an assistant professor of French at New York University and also assistant editor of the Modern Language Association of America, began his serious research on the Marquis de Sade in 1946 while studying for his master's degree at Columbia University. In the course of his research since then he has spent much time in public and private libraries in France and the United States, has had access to manuscripts not generally seen, and has become acquainted with several descendents of Sade.
Dr. Taylor was graduated from Reed College in Portland, Oregon and took his doctorate at Columbia University. He has spent some time in government service, and during the war he taught aerial navigation and flew combat missions in the Pacific as a navigator. Dr. Taylor is the author of a recent article on Sade which appeared in the Yale French Studies, and wrote all the items on Sade in A Critical Bibliography of French Literature ( Syracuse University Press, 1951). At present he is at work on a book, and several articles on French literature of the eighteenth century.
