Alice 150 Featured Object of the Month: October

“Alice 150 Years and Counting…The Legacy of Lewis Carroll: Selections from the Collection of August and Clare Imholtz,” an exhibit highlighting the timelessness of Alice in Wonderland and the life and work of Lewis Carroll (1832-1898), will showcase a new Alice related item every month.

In October, visit the Maryland Room Exhibit Gallery in Hornbake Library to view a humorous holograph letter written by Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) to his friend Michael Ernest Sadler, Steward of Christ Church. Be sure to note the purple ink in which the letter is written (a trademark of Lewis Carroll), and enjoy the contents, which include a “little jar of Orange Marmalade,” which is in danger of being eaten if not picked up promptly.
