Radagast was, in "Queer Lodgings", chapter 7 // [In reply to] Can't Post

 Saruman was not mentioned, at least not in my copy of TH

The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.

Radagast is. [In reply to] Can't Post

Saruman's involvement is in RotK appendix.

Saruman can only be indirectly inferred without going to LotR... [In reply to] Can't Post

As others have stated, Gandalf gives Radagast's name as a referral to Beorn, who knows the Brown Wizard. Saruman is the head of Gandalf's order and so his existance is implied in the "council of white wizards" that Gandalf mentions in front of Bilbo when they return to Rivendell.

Much more is made at the Council of Elrond of Saruman's contribution to the White Council's 2941 assault on Dol Guldur. And there is more in the LotR Appendices.

Thx :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

Good point. That was what I recalled- no mention of Saruman specifically, but an INFERENCE.
