Gene O Larson

Gene Larson works at the California State Library where, among other duties, he catalogs books donated to the American Haiku Archives. Before this he worked at Encyclopaedia Britannica for 23 years as a researcher, editor, and manager of the Library Research Service. That department had an archive of a half million research reports, pamphlets, photographs, and ephemera.

His interest in haiku came by way of others, initially by a San Francisco neighbor, Jerry Kilbride, and later by a coworker at Encyclopaedia Britannica, Charlie Trumbull. His goal is to promote the American Haiku Archives and the California State Library in Sacramento.
