Assigning members of the club to single categories is often obviously quite arbitrary: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) was both an author and a mathematician, Benjamin Disraeli a prime minister and a novelist, Du Maurier, an illustrator, political cartoonist, and novelist, John Ruskin an art and social critic and an artist, F. D. Maurice a novelist and religious figure, William Wilberforce an influential member of Parliament and author of one of the most famous religious books of the century.
