TEP #16 – William Fliss

For this week’s episode, I was able to interview an archivist who works with Tolkien’s manuscripts as part of his day job: William Fliss!

William (Bill) Fliss is an archivist in the Special Collections and University Archives of the Raynor Memorial Libraries of Marquette University in Milwaukee Wisconsin. Bill is in charge of Tolkien’s manuscripts for The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and a couple other short stories by Tolkien. He has started a collection called The J.R.R. Tolkien Fandom Oral History Collection, and he is still seeking fans to interview! Click the link to participate: https://www.marquette.edu/library/archives/Mss/JRRT/fandomoh.php
