January 27: The Original Mad Hatter

On this day in 1832 English author, mathematician, and Anglican clergyman Lewis Carroll was born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson in Daresbury, Cheshire County, England. (Carroll invented his pen name by translating his first two names into the Latin "Carolus Lodovicus" and then anglicizing it into "Lewis Carroll.")
He is best known to Disney fans as the author of the 1865 story Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and the 1872 Through the Looking-Glass.
