To German parents,
if you can believe On March, the second,
to Theo and Henrietta,
a child was bore. Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts, to Theodor Robert Geisel, a successful brewmaster, and Henrietta Seuss Geisel. At age 18, Geisel left home to attend Dartmouth College, where he became the editor in chief of its humor magazine, Jack-O-Lantern.
When Geisel and his friends were caught drinking in his dorm room one night, in violation of Prohibition law, he was kicked off the magazine staff, but continued to contribute to it using the pseudonym "Seuss." After graduating from Dartmouth, Geisel attended Oxford University in England, with plans to eventually become a professor. Giesel at Dartmouth He dropped out of Oxford in 1927 He met his first wife, Helen Palmer, while at Oxford.
She was the one who encouraged him to become an illustrator In October 1967, Helen, who was suffering from both cancer and the emotional pain caused by an affair Geisel had with their longtime friend Audrey Stone Diamond, committed suicide.
Geisel married Audrey the following year. he doodled and scribbled

his work seemed like heaven
but he didn't start making books
until nineteen fifty seven Cartooning full-time, 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, his first using the pen name "Seuss," landed him a staff position at the New York weekly Judge
He then worked for Standard Oil in the advertising department, where he spent the next 15 years. At the start of World War II, Geisel began contributing weekly political cartoons to the liberal publication PM Magazine.
In 1942, too old for the World War II draft, Geisel served with Frank Capra's Signal Corps, making animated training films and drawing propaganda posters for the Treasury Department and the War Production Board. A major turning point in Geisel's career came when, in response to a 1954 LIFE magazine article that criticized children's reading levels, Houghton Mifflin and Random House asked him to write a children's primer using 220 vocabulary words. hundreds of books,
for kids he did write,
but what many didn't notice

His writing and illustration has inspired over tv specials and movies
on top of everything, one day each year is dedicated in his honor predictions "everbodeh lurves heem" "everybodeh go'n keep lurvin heem" Hidden in the Curtains Besides there being wokets in his back pockets,
many of children's books had hidden meanings to them,
usually politicalor controversal in some way or another.
