Who is Dr. Seuss?
Born in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2nd, 1904, Theodor Seuss Geisel showed sparks of his talents from an early age. While attending Dartmouth College, he became editor-in-chief of the Dartmouth Jack-O-Lantern, a magazine devoted to humour. But when he was removed as Editor-in-Chief by the Dean, He continued to contribute to the magazine by using pseudonyms which included “Seuss”.
After graduation, he added the “Dr.” prefix to his most famous pseudonym and contributed his now-classic artwork to many advertising campaigns. He also drew many political cartoons for “PM”, one of New York’s many newspapers. When World War II broke out, Geisel joined the US Armed Forces as a captain and became commander of the First Motion Picture Unit animation department.
He was involved in created both animated and live action propaganda movies, but his most famous was a series of training cartoons known as “Private Snafu”. A series used to teach soldiers the protocols of the US Army. After the war, Geisel and his wife moved to Southern California where he decided to pursue his passion of writing children’s books.
Classic Children’s Books
While Geisel has written “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” in 1937, he had stopped writing children’s books until after the war. But he made up for lost time by creating many classic books, including “Horton Hears a Who!”, “The Cat in the Hat”, and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” just to name a few.
One of his works became a major motion picture, “The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T” which today is considered a cult classic. Geisel would continue to write children’s books and offer his help with the many screen adaptations of his works until he passed away in 1991. But as his books survive, so too does the remarkable artwork he created not only for his children’s books, but also for the many advertisements and political cartoons that he created.
