The Washing Machine Repairman

Here's a fun quote.
"As I remember, Bill X fixed my washing machine. My husband, Harry X, brought him home to talk economics after a Cambridge dinner in hall and they walked in on my frustration with the washer. I met a slight-statured, quiet man who modestly asked if he could help. He tried something with a screw-driver which may have worked - or perhaps it didn't work - and went back to talking economics'"

Who were  "Harry" and Bill?
