I Learned Something Today

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (pronounced /ˈdɒdsən/, DOD-sən; 27 January 1832 – 14 January 1898), better known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll (/ˈkærəl/, KA-rəl), was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer. His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass
I found this to be rather intriguing, as I did not know he wrote under a pen name, nor that he was a photographer and an Anglican Deacon.  A brilliant man indeed.
