Charles Lutwidge Dodgson

Nom de plume, Lewis Carroll
(b. 1832)


Charles Lutwidge Dodgson is a mathematician of some renown, having spent 25 years as a lecturer in Mathematics at Christ Church, Oxford. However, he is probably best known by his pseudonym Lewis Carroll, under which he wrote his popular tales Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Dodgson has always had a rapport with children, and loves to tell them fantastic stories; Alice actually evolved from one such tale told to some of his young friends (including one Alice Liddell) while on a boat ride in 1862.
