J R R Tolkien studied and taught at Oxford University, and while there he started a writing group called The Inklings, which counted among its members C.S. Lewis and Owen Barfield (a little known fact is that here at OCC, we can be sometimes be spotted in 'The Eagle and Child', chosen and preferred pub of the Inklings, enjoying a pint of fine ale, sitting in the EXACT spot where Tolkien himself used to sit).
It was also at Oxford, while grading a paper, that he spontaneously wrote a short line about "a hobbit."
