The circle is named after H.M.Taylor (1842-1927) who discussed
it in 1883.

Henry Martyn Taylor and the blind student of mathematics
"One Braille notation was devised by the eminent Cambridge
mathematician, Henry Martyn Taylor, who was overtaken by
blindness in 1894, when engaged in the preparation of an
edition of Euclid for the Cambridge University Press. By
means of his ingenious and well thought out Braille notation
he was enabled to transcribe many advanced scientific and
mathematical works, and in 1917, with the assistance of Mr.
Emblen, a blind member of the staff of the National
Institute for the Blind, he perfected it. It was recognised
as so comprehensive that it was soon adopted as the standard
mathematical and chemical notation, and is universally used
by English-speaking people." Taken from: NEW BEACON, Vol.
XVIII, No. 210, June 15, 1934, pp. 146-148
