Description
The G. Edward Cassady, M.D. and Margaret Elizabeth Cassady, R.N. Lewis Carroll collection consists of photographs, ephemera, realia, visual resources, games, reference works, 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. The collection was donated by USC alumnus Dr. George Cassady beginning in 2000 and named for his parents.
