The HMEE-2012 team was led by Saya U Aung Hla Tun (National Literary Award winner and former Chief Editor of RIT Annual Magazines).

Saya U Ba Than provided many photos for use by the Project. He hosted the initial meeting for the Project and the penultimate meeting at his place (Winner Inn).

Saya U Thaw Kaung (former Chief Librarian of Rangoon University Central Library) provided access to Saya U Soe Paing and team to search the archives of Rangoon University and scan pertinent documents.

Saya U Soe Paing compiled material for the first two Sections of the book. He prepared a draft in English.

U Ohn Khine translated Section One of the book from Burmese into English. He wrote a summary of Section Two. His work was reviewed by Saya Des Rodgers and Saya U Soe Paing (who made revisions). U Ohn Khine and I compiled articles and photos for the CD Supplement of the book.

U Thant Zin and U Hla Win helped with the meetings and logistics.

U Myint Pe (M72, co-founder of Cartoon Box) also served as a member.

Daw Pyone Pyone Oo and team interviewed selected sayas and sayamas for the Project.

U Htay Maung (Editor at Myanmar Times) and his team provided Burmese Word Processing support for Saya U Aung Hla Tun.
