Remembering David Paul

ETAN/Boston was saddened by the death of David Paul on October 29, 1997. David Paul, a Watertown, MA resident, was a long-time human rights activist who worked for social and political justice in East Timor. He was a founding member of the East Timor Action Committee (ETAC) in 1982/3 and helped organize several important public forums and conferences. He also developed an annotated bibliography on East Timor that first circulated in 1984. While working as a librarian in Government Documents at Harvard University, David assisted our local ETAN chapter.

Through colleagues at Harvard, an ETAN educational fund to promote greater public awareness about East Timor has been established in his name. Contributions may be directed to ETAN/Boston. Our sympathies to his partner and friends worldwide.
