Name of creator
Harry J. Pollock (1920- ) is an advertising executive, writer and teacher. He developed an interest in the work of James Joyce and established the James Joyce Society in Toronto in 1964. Pollock has written and staged several plays that were adaptations of Joyce's works, including 'Yes, I will yes,' 'Night boat from Dublin,' and 'Giacomo de Trieste,'. Pollock has delivered talks at Joyce symposia in Canada, Ireland and Italy, as well as co-editing proceedings from some of these Joyce conferences. He has also written a novel ('Gabriel,') and some poetry. In addition, Pollock has written and produced several television programmes and radio documentaries. In 1969 Pollock became a Fellow of Stong College, York University and offered college tutorials on Joyce and creative writing there until 1995. He received an honourary D.Litt in 1995 from York University. He also served as the curator of the Anglo-Irish collection at McMaster University in Hamilton, 1970-1972.
