Conolly Norman

The physician whom Mulligan mentions in connection with the Richmond Lunatic Asylum, "Conolly Norman," was a prominent Irish "alienist," or psychiatrist, who supervised several such institutions in the later 19th century. The spelling used in Hans Walter Gabler's edition, "Connolly Norman," is incorrect.
