Description Edit | History

John D. Rateliff is a game designer and Tolkien scholar who was hired by TSR as an editor in October 1991 to help "make the writer sound more like himself or herself."

He has a PhD from Marquette University located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, choosing Marquette for his doctorate degree because of their library of Tolkien manuscripts. He helped organize several Tolkien conferences and symposiums and even managed to petition Southern Arkansas University to offer a course on Tolkien.
