    the meaning of the word "gollums"

    I've read the following in an article in an English magazine:

    It seems that too many of the "old guard" are intellectual gollums......

    I'd like to learn a little about this word, for I've not found it in my dictionaries.

    Thanks a lot.

    'Gollum' is a character in the J.R.R Tolkien novel trilogy 'Lord of the Rings', more context is needed to understand what the writer means by 'intellectual gollums'.
