an Ayn Rand tribute site
"Before he shrugged . . . he listed."
This is an attempt to create a census of each individual mentioned in the novel, Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand.
Major and minor characters are counted, including any individual mentioned by name or by title, or with a physical description or dialog, or, when in a small group, by the order within the group, or when in relationship to an individual as previously identified by the rubric above, then by the nature of that relationship, whether fictional or real, within the novel.
Please send suggestions, corrections or questions to:AtlasListed@gmail.com
Individuals are listed here in order of appearance, followed by an alphabetized list, with page numbers indicating their first appearance in the Plume trade paperback edition, August 1999 printing.
There are, based on this census, 137 individuals identified by nickname or name (first, last or both), and 581 unnamed individuals identified by job title, relationship to a named character, or otherwise as indicated above, for a total of 718 individuals counted, as listed below.
