He was found in his apartment having passed away quietly.  His close friend, CODE Honorary Member Wayne Fairhead, assures us he did not suffer. 

Dr. Taylor was a much celebrated drama professor at NYU whose books will be known to many of you.  He conducted workshops around the world including at CODE conferences and for our members when he was in Toronto.  His passion, wry political insights and profound respect for drama in education leave a powerful legacy for all of us. 

Please do read his impressive biography. 

CODE will share any further details as we learn them.

Rest in peace, Philip.  You gave so much to so many through your important work in Drama Education.
