Lewis Carroll was the nom-de-plume of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898). He was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon, and photographer. His talent as a mathematical student at Oxford won him the Christ Church Mathematical Lectureship in 1855, which he continued to hold for the next twenty-six years. Despite early unhappiness, Dodgson was to remain at Christ Church, in various capacities, until his death.
