About the Artist:
Born in 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts, Theodor Seuss Geisel began writing while attending Dartmouth College, where he would rise to the editor-in-chief position at the Dartmouth Jack-O-Lantern, which was a humor magazine at Dartmouth. Geisel began using the “Dr. Seuss” pen name while at Dartmouth before meeting his future wife, Helen Palmer, at Oxford, who, after seeing his notebooks, encouraged him to pursue a career in drawing. His articles and illustrations were published in numerous magazines, including LIFE and Vanity Fair. A cartoon that he published in the July 1927 issue of The Saturday Evening Post landed him a staff position at the New York weekly Judge. During World War II, Geisel began contributing weekly political cartoons to the liberal publication PM Magazine, and following the war, he and Helen moved to California, where he would write at least eight hours a day. Throughout his career, Geisel wrote over 60 books and won numerous awards, including the 1984 Pulitzer Prize, an Academy Award, three Emmys and three Grammys. His final book, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! was published the year before his death, intended to be a sendoff for children of all ages. Geisel passed away in 1991 at the age of 87, and remains one of the most popular children’s authors in history.
