Christopher Tolkien, son of JRR Tolkien, has passed away at the age of 95.

Christopher apparently was the one who drew most of the maps in The Lord of the Rings, and was primarily responsible for the editing and collecting of the various JRR legendarium works that were published posthumously, most notably The Silmarillion, along with several others.
