Donna Bauerly (born August 30, 1934, Potosi, Wisconsin), taught for 52 years at various levels, the last 36 as a professor of literature and writing at Loras College, Dubuque, Iowa, and following retirement, as a volunteer 5th grade teacher. Bauerly’s haiku have been published in the Haiku Society of America members’ anthologies and in journals including Frogpond and Wind Chimes; she was especially active in the Shiki Internet Kukai. She produced a biography of the pioneering American haijin, Raymond Roseliep, Man of Art Who Loves the Rose (2015), believed to be the first book-length treatment of an English-language haiku poet.
