Poetic Obituaries: [Hide Oshiro] wrote one haiku every day

ever since he was a teen. In November, he donated several volumes of poetry and about 750 other pieces of art to Goddard College in Plainfield, Vt.

In World War II, Oshiro spent time in an internment camp. Despite that, he joined the U.S. Army and worked for six years as a translator and Japanese language instructor.
