Most Chumashim contain a commentary, called Toldos Aharon, which cites which gemara cites each verse (kind of like a reverse Torah Ohr).

Who wrote it?

    Can you link to a page of Humash with such commentary? That may help in the search.

  • @Menachem, given the similar name, it seems like אהרן היימאן is a likely source (except that what is in the Chumashim is abridged to only focus on Talmud).

  • @Yishai: It was published in 1937-38, so if you can find an earlier Chumash with the Toldot Aharon it will disprove that theory: he.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

  • @Menachem, well then it looks like the name is coincidental
