The Chicago Homer received generous support from a variety of sources, and the editors wish to express their gratitude for it. Without a lot of direct and indirect support from the Perseus Project, our project would never have got off the ground. In addition to providing us with the electronic texts on which our text is based, Perseus gave us full access to Morpheus, the morphological parser that provided us with the essential tool for creating the most distinctive features of the Chicago Homer.
We are grateful for generous support by the University of Chicago Press in earlier stages of this project and in particular single out the technical work of Bruce Barton and Roy Bixler, the design work of Michael Brehm, and the support and advice of Penelope Kaiserlian.
The programming work for the Chicago Homer was done by Craig Berry and Bill Parod. The work of Bill Parod was supported by Academic Technologies at Northwestern University. The work of Craig Berry was supported by a variety of sources, including most prominently the University Library, but also the Graduate School, the College of Arts and Sciences, and Academic Technologies at Northwestern University.
