About Us

This site was developed in 2005 by Hugh Richmond from materials assembled during his thirty-five years with the Berkeley Shakespeare Program. It was established and funded by the Shakespeare Program of the University of California at Berkeley (originally sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the UC Berkeley Administration), and has since been supported by further grants from the UC Berkeley Senate Teaching Committee and Committee on Research, and from the California Council for the Humanities.
