Oregon has been an independent HSA region since 2008, but has a prominent haiku history that stretches back many decades. It began with one of the earliest English-language haiku organizations, the Western World Haiku Society, founded by Lorraine Ellis Harr in 1972. She also published the haiku journal Dragonfly from 1972 to 1984.
