Lewis Carroll's real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. He was born in 1832 in Daresbury, England. While teaching mathematics at Oxford University, he made up stories for his friend's three daughters. The story he told the little girl named Alice and her sisters became Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. He had it published into a book in 1865.
