At St John's College, Oxford, A.E. Housman formed strong friendships with two roommates, Moses Jackson and A.W. Pollard. Jackson became the great love of Housman's life, though the latter's feelings were not reciprocated, as Jackson was heterosexual. After Oxford, Jackson got a job as a clerk in the Patent Office in London and arranged a job there for Housman as well. They shared a flat at 82 Talbot Road, Westbourne Park, W2 from 1882 with Jackson's brother Adalbert until 1885 when Housman moved to lodgings of his own at nearby 39 Northumberland Place, W2 from 1885 to 1886. He had also lived at number 15 Northumberland Place, W2 from 1881 to 1882.
