      Today (June 7,2007) Raynor Memorial Libraries celebrated the 50th
      anniversary of the acquisition by cataloging the 1,000th item in the
      secondary collection.

      But also: on June 7, 1957 professor J. R. R. Tolkien delivered the
      manuscripts for three books--The Hobbit, Farmer Giles of Ham, and Mr.
      Bliss--to a London antiquarian book dealer who had purchased the
      author's collection for Marquette University.

      On October 4, 2007, 4:00 p.m. there will be a conference by John D.
      Rateliff as part of the 50th anniversary celebration: "'A Kind of
      Elvish Craft': Tolkien as Literary Craftsman", at Raynor Library's
      Conference Center.
