This article will attempt to put together a portrait of Michael H.R. Tolkien’s life through recent archival and research visits to various locations related to him in the United Kingdom. These visits were conducted during the Spring and Fall of 2015, and while much still needs to be compiled the information as it is currently known, along with the photographs and video footage, provide a unique portrait of Michael H.R. Tolkien never before known. The presentation of the information as it was uncovered is given chronologically, because the volume of research began as an avalanche that affected subsequent tangents and visits, and also because the reader will appreciate the unraveling of the documentation in this manner (almost like a detective story).
