Paul Brodeur: Journalist Who Exposed Asbestos Hazards

From a Washington Post obit by Harrison Smith headlined “Paul Brodeur, journalist who exposed asbestos hazards, dies at 92”:

Paul Brodeur, who wrote evocative, richly detailed short stories and novels but was best-known for his crusading environmental journalism in the pages of the New Yorker, notably in articles that helped expose the health hazards of asbestos and the danger that industrial chemicals posed to the ozone layer, died at a hospital in Hyannis, Mass.
