Anthony and Jessica of the North East Tolkien Society write: The proceedings from the 2004 Marquette University LOTR Conference have now been published. New research by twenty scholars of J.R.R. Tolkien is now available from the Marquette University Press. The articles were originally presented at the October 2004 conference, “The Lord of the Rings, 1954-2004: Scholarship in Honor of Richard E. Blackwelder,” organized by the Marquette Libraries’ Department of Special Collections and University Archives. The international conference celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Tolkien’s masterpiece, as well as the opening of Marquette’s new John P. Raynor, S.J., Library.
