About The Lewis Carroll Society

The Lewis Carroll Society was formed in 1969 with the aim of encouraging research into the life and works of Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson). The Society has members around the world, including many leading libraries and institutions, authors, researchers and many who simply enjoy Carroll's books and want to find out more about the man and his work. Why not join the LCS - for your own interest and entertainment or to make a contribution to Carroll scholarship? Our subscriptions are remarkably low for a society of this nature.
