60 Classic Photos That Shine A New Light On History
Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss) at the age of ten with his dog Rex, 1914
Dr. Seuss wasn’t always a doctor, but oddly enough he was technically a Seuss - it was his mother’s maiden name. Born Theodore Geisel, he was brought up in Springfield Massachusetts where he helped his father work in the family brewery until it was closed due to prohibition.
When he wasn’t helping his father, the young Seuss spent a lot of time at the local zoo where he would sketch the animals while hanging out with his mother and sister. Is it any wonder that so many weird and wacky animals made their way into his later work? If only we knew whether or not his mother served green eggs and ham.
