The J.R.R. Tolkien Manuscripts: Public Showings in 2015-2016

Since the late 1950s, Marquette Libraries' Department of Special Collections has been home to the original manuscripts of J.R. R. Tolkien's beloved classics, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The department will conduct a public showing of selected original manuscripts from the collection on the following Friday afternoons through the end of 2016. These showings are open to members of the campus community and to the general public. They are not suitable for children under the age of ten. No photography is permitted. Due to limited space in the archives, each group will be capped at approximately 25 persons.

Upcoming dates:
January 22, 2016
March 18, 2016
May 20, 2016
July 22, 2016
September 16, 2016
November 18, 2016

All presentations will take place at 2:30 p.m. in the Prucha Archives Reading Room (3rd floor, Raynor Library) and will run approximately one hour. Please contact William Fliss, Archivist by e-mail or phone (414-288-5906) to register in advance for one of these events.
