Table of contents What's This?
The G. Edward Cassady, M.D. and Margaret Elizabeth Cassady, R.N. Lewis Carroll collection consists of photographs, correspondence, ephemera, realia, graphic materials, games, reference works, material from stage and film adaptations, and other archival material relating to children's literature author, mathematician, and writer Charles Dodgson (1832-1898), better known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll. Most well known for his first children's novels, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking-Glass (1871), Carroll was a nineteenth-century British polymath with works spanning many disciplines, including but not limited to geometry, early photography, politics, logic, and puzzles. Dr. George Cassady and Linda Cassady assembled, categorized, and donated the collection in multiple installments beginning in 2000. The collection is named for George Cassady's parents, G. Edward and Margaret Elizabeth Cassady.
