It happened at various universities around the world.  Look at the
original Haskell committee and you'll get a good idea where.

The smallest Haskell I know of is Gofer/Hugs; it originally ran on a 640k PCs.
Before that languages like SASL and KRC ran on PDP-11 with 64k memory.
None of these had a compiler that was bootstrapped, but I had a simple
functional language that compiled itself and ran in 64K.
The smallest bootstrapped Haskell compiler is NHC which (I think) runs
in a few MB.
