John Hunt, a professor of literature nearing retirement from the University of Montana, conceived and designed this site with coding help from several technologically savvy collaborators. Having currently written about 660 notes, a small fraction of what will ultimately be needed, he hopes to live long enough to finish the job.

Other people have contributed in various ways to the development of the site. They are listed here alphabetically, with brief bios that may not always have kept up with the passage of time.

Ole Bønnerup, proofreader extraordinaire for the site, taught English and French in a Danish high school for 35 years and is now filling the blessed void of retirement by learning new languages and tackling great works of literature like Ulysses. He lives in Aarhus.

Gareth Collins lives in Belfast, and works in insurance for his sins. He has been hooked on Joyce's books, and Dublin, for as long as he can remember, and takes photos of the city to document the continuity of past and present. Some of them appear in the notes.
