Nabokov & Lewis Carroll

I know there's a  connection. Didn't early Nabokov translate Alice into Russian? (I want to say somewhere--perhaps Strong Opinions--Nabokov claims there's a photo that definitively proves Carroll a pedophile. Or am I wrong?)

Anyway, seems in word golf (aka's are word ladder, word-links, and doublets) we have another connection.
