John Hunt is an American professor, living in Missoula, who retired in 2020 after teaching works of medieval, Renaissance, and modern literature for 33 years. He designed the site and for nearly ten years has been editing Joyce's text and diving joyfully into its obscurities. Having labored obsessively on some 700 notes, he hopes to live long enough to complete what he knows is an endless task.

Many other people have contributed to the website, in various ways. Some of their bios have not kept up with the passage of time.
