  ‘Alice Hargreaves was the married name of Alice Liddell, for whom Lewis Carroll originally wrote the book. In 1932, during the celebrations of the centenary of Carroll s birth, Alice, who had lived a peaceful life in the south of England for many years, suddenly became a public figure. Her most notable and watched action was a trip to New York to receive an honorary degree from Columbia University’. [Lovett and Lovett]
