Former APF fellow James Ridgeway (APF’ 2014) died Feb. 13 in Washington, D.C. A hard-hitting reporter, he exposed the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and inhumane conditions in American prisons, which was the subject of his Patterson fellowship. From environmental pollution to auto safety, he was concerned with the harms to individuals. In his later years, he wrote hundreds of letters to prisoners held in solitary confinement, trying to ease the cruelty of their lack of human contact. He was 84.
