As a retired Special Librarian and Information Consultant, he has taught research to Ph.D. candidates, helped establish and/or organized three libraries; Academic, Corporate, Museum, and volunteered for nearly 10 years as church librarian; cataloging and maintaining a collection of over 2200 titles. Paul has published a wide variety of articles, along with self-publishing several small books, including Letters from Paul, and re-publishing and editing his uncle’s important reference book, Pioneers in Brass, 4th Edition, a multi-media book on CD-ROM.
He is currently Editor of Plateau Area Writers Association's Quarterly and anthology series, Contrasts.
