When Was Lord of the Rings Published?

Debated on the last podcast-- the Hobbit was published in 1937, Lord of the Rings was started before WW2 but published in 1949. Yeah, I was waaaaay off on that one.

  1. According to Wikipedia, howard started writing fantasy (King Kull), in 1929, and published Conan in 1932, five years before the hobbit. I would be curious to know if he and Tolkin had any coorespondence or influance on each other.
