Reflections on the Lewis Carroll archives on Wednesday 8th December 2021

The 'Alice' books of Lewis Carroll, now 150 years old and more, remain a powerfully influential source of cultural reference, world-wide, with 'Alice in Wonderland' the most translated book written in England (175 languages). Their author, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, visited the family home in Guildford frequently over the last 30 years of his life, and died there in 1898. It is now 75 years since the earliest accession to our Lewis Carroll archive; with the addition of the Dodgson Family Archive in 1965, and many further donations, our holdings have grown to be one of the most important collections for the study of the man, his world and legacy.

Our talk will describe the Surrey background to the Dodgsons' story and the origins of our collections. Joining us to celebrate this anniversary and discuss the Lewis Carroll legacy from the family's perspective will be Caroline Luke, the great-great niece of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, Family Trustee and author.
