Christopher Luke Wiseman (1893-1987) was the first of J.R.R. Tolkien good friends made at King Edward's school in Birmingham, whom he met in 1905. Wiseman, Robert Q. Gilson, and others formed with Tolkien the "T.C.B.S." social club, centered on their mutual intellectual interests. Of Tolkien's good friends from the club, only Wiseman survived the First World War.
Tolkien's third son Christopher Tolkien was named after Wiseman.
