About the Project
FellowsHub is an interactive reference portal for studying mid-twentieth-century fanzines and fan culture surrounding the works of J. R. R. Tolkien (1892-1973). The site is based on the extensive collection of Tolkien-related fanzines gathered by Sumner Gary Hunnewell of Arnold, Missouri and donated to Marquette University. Mr. Hunnewell began assembling his collection of historical fanzines in the 1970s. A prominent Tolkien fan, Hunnewell has published and presented under the name Hildifons Took.
FellowsHub is a collaboration of Raynor Memorial Libraries’ Digital Scholarship Lab, Library Information Technology Department, and Department of Special Collections and University Archives.
