The Poetry of J.R.R. Tolkien, an essay by George Burke Johnston, reprints Tolkien’s poem The Root of the Boot from Songs for the Philologists.
See pp.63-75, but especially pp.68-69.
The fact that this edition refers to Mankato State University rather than Mankato State College, indicates that it is a later reprint - MSC was renamed MSU in 1975, a name that was in use until 1998.
The estimated date given above is largely arbitrary, but the papers were printed both separately and as a collection by the American Tolkien Society between December 1975 and October 1978, so the odds of them also being reprinted by MSU at that time seem low.
