      В "Dictionary of Minor Planet Names" (Schmadel L.D., 2003, 5th Edition, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, p. 219) об астероиде сообщается следующее:

      "(2675) Tolkien
     1982 GB. Discovered 1982 Apr. 14 by M. Watt at Anderson Mesa.
     Named in memory of J.R.R. Tolkien (1892–1973), author and philologist, Merton professor of English language at the University of Oxford. Best known for his imaginative writings, in particular The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, he also had a lifelong interest in astronomy. (M 7474)"

      Под М 7474, очевидно, имеется в виду соответствующий выпуск Minor Planet Circulars, появившийся в конце 1982 года и не имеющий цифровой копии ("The MPCs between the 1981 Dec. 11 and 1983 Apr. 27 batches are not available in electronic form as the magnetic tape that held the archive copies of these circulars was accidentally overwritten sometime in the late 1980s or early 1990s" (MPC/MPO/MPS Archive)).
