After the Great War, J.R.R. Tolkien's first job was an assistant on the Oxford English Dictionary. Yet the experience proved to be of enormous significance for his subsequent endeavors, literary as well as academic. He later said of it, "I learned more in those two years than in any equal period of my life."
