It was published in the Dial in New York about 3 months after publication in the Criterion in London. That does not tell us who held copyright, but one might find out by looking at the Dial edition in some rare book room.

I believe TWL was published in mags on both sides
of the Atlantic at the same time (without notes),
before the book form came out.
Sounds to me that that version (which does have a few variations in
lines from the book edition), would, on the basis of what Rick said,
no longer be copyrighted in the US.
