Miron Hirschwald

Manager of Imprimerie Darantiere in Dijon who oversaw the typesetting of JJ's Ulysses between April 1921 and January 1922; best remembered for introducing erroneous corrections to the text. He was born Miron Hirschwald (also Hirchwald) in Rostov-on-Don in southern Russia, the son of Latvians Jacob Hirschwald and his wife Anna. He emigrated to Paris during the First World War with his wife Vera Ingal; their sons were born in Paris (1916), Annecy (1918), and Dijon (1919). In Paris, Hirschwald offered lessons in Russian. Sainte-Hélène, petite île, his translation into French of M. A. Aldanov's historical novel, was published in 1921. By 1924, Hirschwald was working as a journalist in Dijon (using the name Michel and, occasionally, Maurice), often for Parisian papers, and he continued in this role until at least the early 1940s. He died in Switzerland in 1968. John Simpson
