Paul de Armond was a writer, reporter and research analyst. He is the recipient of the Whatcom Human Rights Task Force 2001 Human Rights Award. In the 1990s, he and Jay Taber established the Public Good Project, a research and activism network which hogged a lot of bandwidth on NWCitizen. Paul has written about various topics including the property rights movement, domestic terrorism, internet fraud schemes, and the WTO protests. In 1995, he was the first source quoted in world media correctly identifying the Oklahoma City bombing as domestic terrorism. His report on the 1999 WTO protests was published by RAND. His work appears in the footnotes and acknowledgments of a lot of books written by other people. Now he’s just irascible and opinionated. He wishes he could retire.

-- Paul died in April 2013. The annual local journalism award is named in his honor.
