Before there was an England!

RT Harders commented on the birth of The Tolkien Society in England in 1969.  —  This may have been the longest continuously running group.  However, I remember being in touch and a member a Tolkien Society in the US.  Richard Plotz began the Tolkien Society of America in 1965.  —  It was with their aid I was able to organize my Tolkien Conference [Conference on Middle-earth {Come to Middle-earth}] in 1969 and again in 1971.  —  The excellent IMHO collection of papers from the two conferences were published as “A Tolkien Compass” in 1975.  —  I proudly say I read the books BP = Before Paperback.  🙂  —  Oh yes, the ACE edition of TLOTR was NOT!!! a pirated edition.
