  Lewis Carroll
"Lewis Carroll" (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson), the author of Alice in Wonderland, of mathematical treatises, and of a quantity of stories and poems, serious and humorous, was the son of a churchman and the eldest of eleven children.
From this time until his death in 1898 the story of Lewis Carroll is the story of his literary work, of his child friends, of his hobbies and inventions, and the story of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, mathematician, lecturer, and scholar, is secondary.
Carroll was tall, thin, and dark, with delicate features, smooth skin, and "thick curly hair." He "was, at sight, a much odder figure than an effervescent country vicar" with his jerky step.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (January 27, 1832 - January 14, 1898), better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was a British author, writer, mathematician and photographer.
It is part of the mythology that Carroll only stammered in adult company, and was free and fluent with children, but there is nothing to support this idea.
This pseudonym was a play on his real name, Lewis being the anglicised form of Ludovicus, which was the Latin for Lutwidge, and Carroll being an anglicised version of Carolus, the Latin for Charles.

 melaniefletcher.com :: Lewis Carroll
Considering that he died years before the term "science fiction" was even coined, Lewis Carroll (aka the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) enjoys a unique place, both as inspiration and participant, in the genre of science fiction.
From the fantastical whimsy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to the mirror-image world of Alice through the Looking Glass, Carroll's stories are a mix of mathematical logic and lyrical nonsense that appeal just as strongly to scientists, engineers, and science fiction writers of today as they did to their original audience in Victorian England.
However, Carroll was also realistic about the effect of his fiction on the reading public.
