Katherine Kilbride

From Tolkien Gateway

Katherine 'Kitty' Kilbride (1900-1966) was a student of J.R.R. Tolkien and E.V. Gordon at the University of Leeds. Kilbride would become a good friend of Tolkien.

Kilbride was “an invalid all her life”, according to her nephew, “and was much cheered by [Tolkien’s] chatty letters and cards ... books were given to her as they were published”.[1]

She was among the recipients to whom Tolkien sent inscribed editions of the newly published The Hobbit, on or close after 21 September 1937.[2]
