"The speakers [at the National Conference on Forced Service] were ... 'Dr. Leonard Peikoff, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn and Associate Lecturer in Philosophy at the Nathaniel Branden Institute [NBI],' who addressed the conferees on the various philosophical issues relevant to any inquiry into the military draft. Leonard Peikoff, in addition to his status as an Associate Lecturer in Philosophy at NBI, was Barbara Branden's cousin and a member of Ayn Rand's inner circle."
