Description

Lewis Carroll, the nom de plume of the Rev. Charles L. Dodgson, a mathematics lecturer at Oxford, was also an innovator in recreational mathematics, magic, puzzles, cryptography, and inventions. His appearances in Scientific American began with mathematician Warren Weaver’s article in April 1956, and his name is mentioned over a hundred times in fourteen of Martin Gardner’s “Mathematical Games” columns. Using these as a springboard, topics will also include Carroll himself, the Wonderland/Looking-Glass dyad, Gardner, and their intertwining in The Annotated Alice.
