This pamphlet was issued on the occasion of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America’s Fall 2000 meeting at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin where Dr. Warren Weaver’s Carroll collection was deposited. The first essay surveys Dr. Weaver’s long career as a mathematician, a director of the Rockefeller Foundation, and of course Carroll collector and bibliographer. Includes a bibliography of Weaver’s Alice publications and two shorter essays: “Warren Weaver’s ‘Description of the Mathematical Manuscripts of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) in the Morris L. Parrish Collection” by Dr. Francine Abeles, and “An Excerpt from ‘Warren and the Pirates,’ Or Alice in Many Tongues and the Translations” by August A. Imholtz, Jr.
