Lewis Carroll, or to give him his real name, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832- 1898), is best remembered for his two Alice books, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking-Glass (1871). Many people do not know that he was a mathematician by profession. He studied at Christ Church, Oxford, and after obtaining a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics, he remained at Christ Church as Mathematical Lecturer for the 47 years until his death.
