Poetic Obituaries: Classically educated, [Harvey] Hess

was a polymath---someone who has far-ranging knowledge of many subjects, including literature, music, poetry, dance, art, creative writing, theology and philosophy.

His haiku can be found in the Newberry Library of Chicago, the Bodelian Library at the University of Oxford in England, and he's one of the few Western haiku poets whose work is found in libraries in Japan.
