The Cassady collection includes over 3,000 rare books, manuscripts and objects created by or about beloved children’s literature author, mathematician and writer Charles Dodgson, better known by his penn name, Lewis Carroll. Most well known for his first children’s novels, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, Carroll was a nineteenth century, British polymath with works spanning many disciplines, including but not limited to geometry, early photography, politics, logic and puzzles. The collection was donated by USC alum Dr. George Cassady in 2000 and named for his parents. Housed at the University of Southern California’s Doheny Library in the Special Collections department on the second floor, the Cassady collection is open to the public for research throughout the year. The Cassady Collection is searchable through USC Libraries catalog, as well as the Cassady collection bibliography [Flip Book].
