This project is directed and edited by Kelly O'Neill (Associate Professor of History, Harvard U). The work of the following contributors/editors has been invaluable: Rachel Koroloff, Greg Afinogenov, Naomi Berkowitz, Jordan Bryant, Jessica Peyton, Alexander Tedeschi, Ed Hicks, Christine Jacobson.
Work on the Geographical Atlas of the Russian Empire, which is in many ways the centerpiece of the project, was made possible thanks to the mind-boggling talents of MadMappers, who performed a georeferencing miracle, and the expertise of many at the Center for Geographic Analysis (Harvard).
The project has received generous support from the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies and the History Department.
