John Hunt, a literature professor of marked hibernophilic tendencies who somehow completed a doctorate at Stanford University and taught the works he loves at the University of Montana, conceived and designed this site with coding help from more technologically savvy collaborators. His days are devoted to producing the perfect text of Ulysses and illuminating its obscurities. Having written (and obsessively re-written) almost 700 notes, he hopes to live long enough to finish what is, realistically, an endless job. He lives happily in Missoula.

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

Patrick Boe is a software engineer living in Philadelphia, where he parents a child, cooks, and rides around on a big green touring bike. He designed the mobile conversion for the site.

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.

Sean Collins completed his M.A. in English Literature at the University of Montana and is currently a doctoral student at the University of Utah. He collaborated on one note.

Iman Fani is an Iranian physician, poet, and filmmaker who currently lives in Sydney. He is translating both Ulysses and the site's notes into Persian on his weblog at, and has consulted on some Middle Eastern questions.

He lives in Dublin and reports that, yes, it is quite superb to be a natural-born denizen of the immortalized city.

Barb Nelson completed her M.A. in English Literature at the University of Montana and lives in Kalispell. She began the laborious task of editing the online text of the novel and compiled an explanatory list of People in the Novel.
