I've always been fairly certain that Tolkien based Gandalf on Bertrand Russell, but that's just a theory.
Like alot of other elements of Lord of the Rings you'll find something very British inhabiting the trappings of Norse motifs or environments.
But I never thought about Russel being Gandalf. Nice.
Gandalf would be an Oxonian don mixed with the hermit/sage vector of the Odin character from Norse mythology.

I hope Bertrand would be pleased with that, were he here. All credit goes to cognitivedissonance.

That was wonderful.
