The Doll Study Club of Jamestown New York met at Alfie's Restaurant on July 19 for their monthly meeting, lunch, and doll-related program. Susan Mitchell gave the group a bit of history on the story of Alice in Wonderland, from its beginnings as a story told to a bored little girl named Alice Liddell, who was being rowed five miles along the Thames with her sisters and two family friends. One of these was the Reverend Chas. Dodgson, the future author of the publication that is famous to this day. From that day in July 1862, it took three years for the tale to be published; it was immediately a sensation, beloved by children and adults alike, including Queen Victoria and the young Oscar Wilde. The book has never been out of print, and there are now over one hundred editions along with countless adaptations in theatre, film and other media.
