About the Author
Charles Dodgson, better known by his pen name Lewis Carroll, was an Oxford academic. Dodgson experimented with branches of mathematics, including symbolic logic, that were the precursors to modern computer science. In the summer of 1862, during a boating trip on the Thames River, he entertained ten-year-old Alice Liddell and her two sisters by telling a story that would become his most famous and lasting work, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. It was published in 1865 and was followed by its sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass, in 1871. He died in 1898 and is buried in Guildford, Surrey, England.
