From the opening page of Carroll’s section at the Family Records Centre:
Lewis Carroll, the author of the Alice books, is probably Britain’s best known writer of children’s fiction. Less well known is the ‘other’ Lewis Carroll, the mathematician, churchman, photographer and Student of Christ Church College, Oxford, who was more familiar to his friends and colleagues as the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.
This exhibition tells the story of his life, from his birth at Daresbury, Cheshire, through his long years at Christ Church to his quite sudden death at his sisters’ house in Guildford.
The story is illustrated using documents from the Family Records Centre, The National Archives and elsewhere.
