Harry Potter and the Hogwarts Staff

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry was established around the year 990 in the highlands of Scotland. Its four founders–Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw, and Salazar Slytherin–succeeded in becoming the “finest school of witchcraft and wizardry in the world”. That’s if you believe Rubeus Hagrid, which we generally do. Hogwarts is prestigious largely because of its excellent professors and support staff, which keep the school running and its students safe. Or relatively safe. It is a wizarding school, after all.

In this infographic, we look at the most important staff members at Hogwarts from September 1991 through May 1998, the years that Harry Potter attended (or should have attended) the school. With a few exceptions, we show the positions these staff members held at the Start-of-Term Feast held on September First each year.
