The National Library notes that in the case of Zrodlo, Dr Zajaczkowski was used as a pseudonym for "Karolina Beylin, Jerzy Panski, Andrzej Stawar, Adam Wazyk, Lucjan Szenwald (the editors of 'Roj')." Possibly, Panski, Stawar, and Wazyk could have worked on Hall's novel as editors, since they translated from French and Russian.
