Brain Snacks: Tasty Tidbits of Knowledge

T.S. Eliot's cousin, Charles Eliot, was the president of the Unitarian Church while Eliot was in college (at Harvard, no less). So we're betting ol' T.S.'s conversion had some awkward family consequences, too. (Source.)

You saw this coming, right? Eliot was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1948.

Can you imagine having this guy as your editor? Well bunches of Brits had the pleasure, when Eliot worked as an editor at Faber & Faber for decades. (Source.)
