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.

Writer

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
