Radiative lifetimes measured with time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence are reported for 39 odd-parity levels and 42 even-parity levels of Ho i and 37 even-parity levels of Ho ii. The levels of Ho i range in energy from 17 000 to 41 000 cm-1, and those of Ho ii from 20 000 to 38 000 cm-1. These lifetimes, with some exceptions, are accurate to ±5%.
