Haradrim (Tolkien Society)
This article or section is a stub. Please help Tolkien Gateway by expanding it.
One of the founders of the society was Peter-Willem Schellen (a.k.a. Fëanor), former treasurer of Unquendor and co-founder of Gil-Galad. Members of this society were involved in locating the former location of the Bank of Africa (Arthur Tolkien's offices), Arthur Tolkien's grave site (where a new tombstone as well as a tree were planted/placed) as well as finding Arthur Tolkien's last will and other documents. Members of the society also hosted members of the Tolkien family on occasion.
The vast distances in South Africa between its large cities (Johannesburg/Pretoria - Bloemfontein - Cape Town - Durban), emigration due to crime and affirmative action as well as cultural and language barriers and the limited interest in J.R.R. Tolkien by the general public all contributed to the demise of this society.
