[Editors' Note: Henry Bradley was the second editor (after Sir James A. H. Murray) of A New English Dictionary on Historical Principles (later titled the Oxford English Dictionary), and was Tolkien's supervisor during the years that he worked on the Dictionary (19191920). This brief memorial on the occasion of Bradley's death first appeared in the Bulletin of the Modern Humanities Research Association for October 1923. To put Tolkien's words in their proper context, we have asked Professor Tom Shippey to comment on Bradley as a philologist, and , associate editor of the Oxford English Dictionary, to assess Bradley's importance to the Dictionary. The Editors are grateful to the Tolkien Estate for allowing Tolkien Studies to reprint this text.] Henry Bradley 3 Dec., 1845 23 May, 1923. n little more than a year English scholarship and letters have suffered three grievous losses. By the death on May 23rd of Dr Henry Bradley we lost not only one of the first scholars of our time, and an authority on the English language who had achieved a position of unique eminence and supremacy, but one of the widest known and most loved of personalities who had made a deep impression
