Robert Major (1920-2008) was a gentle man and accomplished poet, born in New England but most associated with the Pacific Northwest where he lived the majority of his life. He authored two books of haiku (Shadow's on the Shoji, Quahog Press, 1997 and Coasting through Puddles: Haiku of Childhood, Saki Press, 2001) and was published widely in all the major journals throughout his long and productive career. He was a professional editor, working for McGraw Hill in New York before moving to Washington State and the University ofWashington Office of Publications. He was an advocate for peace, and was instrumental in the founding of the Peace Park in Seattle. He was a lifelong Quaker and a lover of flowers (especially Dahlias & Dianthus), and his work often illustrates his commitment to the one and his passion for the other.
