TS Eliot studied at Smith Academy and following his education there in 1905, went on to Milton Academy for one year before going to Harvard.

During the outbreak of the First World War, TS Eliot came to London and married Vivienne Haigh-Wood.

After marriage, TS Eliot worked at Highgate School and then at the Royal Grammar School in High Wycombe, earning extra money on the side by writing book reviews. In 1917 he took a job with Lloyds Bank, and by 1925 became the director of Faber and Gwyer, publishing firm.
In 1927 Eliot became a British citizen and converted to Anglicanism. His marriage was beginning to break down and soon after led to a separation, however he did not remarry until 1957 to his former secretary at Faber and Gwyer, some 38 years his junior.
