Tolkien Society to unveil J.R.R. Tolkien commemorative plaque in Leeds Can't Post

The Tolkien Society has announced that a 'blue plaque, ' (a.k.a. historical marker), will be unveiled at 2 Darnley Road, West Park, Leeds, commemorating the time J.R.R. Tolkien lived there. J.R.R. Tolkien became Reader in English language at the University of Leeds and went on to be made Professor of the English Language at the university. In 1924 Tolkien bought the semi-detached property on Darnley Road and the family lived there for over a year before Tolkien’s election to the Rawlinson and Bosworth chair of Anglo-Saxon saw them return to Oxford in 1926.

Dr Kersten Hall, graduate of St Anne’s College, Oxford and Visiting Fellow to the Faculty of Arts at the University of Leeds will unveil the plaque on the 1st of October 2012 at 11:30 a.m. local time. As soon as it's unveiled, we'll update this story with a picture of the plaque. Stay tuned.
