Next in Literary Locations: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, an Oxford mathematician better known under his pen name Lewis Carroll.

Carroll spent most of his life in the Christ Church College of Oxford, first as a student, then as a lecturer in mathematics, and later in various roles including even the Sub-Librarian of the Christ Church Library.
