Theodor Seuss Geisel, beloved author and illustrator of children's books known as Dr. Seuss, was born on March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts to Theodor Robert and Henrietta (Seuss) Geisel. His father, the son of German immigrant parents, managed the family brewery and later supervised (1931-1960) Springfield's public park system. Ted Geisel grew up in the midst of a German American community coping with growing anti-German war sentiment, attended Springfield's Central High School as an average student and entered Dartmouth College in the fall of 1921, where he studied English and edited (1924-1925) the college's humor magazine, Jack O'Lantern. After graduating from Dartmouth, he attended Lincoln College at Oxford University to study English literature, but soon abandoned the effort in favor of pursuing a career in illustration. While at Oxford, Geisel courted his future wife, Helen Marion Palmer.

Geisel returned to Springfield in 1926 and began a career as a freelance illustrator by sending humorous pieces and cartoons to newspapers and magazines. With the encouraging sale of a cartoon for twenty-five dollars to the Saturday Evening Post, Geisel moved to New York and soon landed a job as a writer and artist for the humor magazine Judge. On November 29, 1927, he married Helen Palmer and a year later they made their first visit to La Jolla, California. In 1928, Geisel began what developed into a seventeen year advertising campaign for "Flit" insecticide, a product of Standard Oil of New Jersey. The "Flit" account provided financial security and time for the Geisels to travel abroad. Other advertising accounts included Essolube motor oil and Essomarine products (both for Standard Oil of New Jersey), the Ford Motor Company, the National Broadcasting Company, Holly Sugar, and Narragansett Lager and Ale.

In 1931, Ted Geisel illustrated his first book, entitled Boners, a collection of children's sayings, which generated enough interest to warrant a second volume, More Boners. But the beginning of Geisel's career as the author and illustrator of children's books came with the publication of And To Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street (1937), a work that combined rhyme and illustration. Geisel published four more books before the outbreak of the Second World War, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins (1938), The Seven Lady Godivas (1939), The King's Stilts (1939) and Horton Hatches The Egg (1940). Although his first two books were published by Vanguard Press, Geisel soon switched to Random House as a result of the efforts of Bennett Cerf, editor and chief executive officer.

Between 1941 and 1943, Geisel regularly contributed incisive, humorous cartoons critical of American isolationist foreign policy to the daily, PM Newspaper. On December 31, 1942, he was commissioned as a captain in the U.S. Army Signal Corps, Information and Education Division and was assigned to the Special Services Division in Hollywood. Rising to the rank of lieutenant colonel, Geisel's projects included illustrations for educational publications and a film entitled Your Job In Germany. He received the Legion of Merit award, and after the war, moved to a house in La Jolla, California, dubbed "The Tower."

Geisel resumed his career in children's books with the publication of McElligot's Pool (1947) and went on to publish another forty books under the pseudonym of Dr. Seuss, thirteen as Theo. LeSieg, and one as Rosetta Stone. In 1957, he published his most famous book, The Cat In The Hat, which was, in part, a reaction to John Hersey's complaint in a 1954 Life Magazine article that the primers used to teach reading were dull and repititious. The Cat In The Hat served as a prototype for Beginner Books, a publishing division of Random House headed by Geisel (1957-1991) that promoted children's literacy through the associative richness of works and images.

Three films for which Geisel wrote the original stories have won Academy Awards: Hitler Lives (1946); Design For Death (1947); and the animation short, Gerald McBoing-Boing (1951). Ted Geisel also wrote a musical entitled The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. Six Dr. Seuss books have been adapted into television specials, and Geisel wrote an additional four original works for television. In 1984, Geisel was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for his "special contribution over nearly half a century to the education and enjoyment of America's children and their parents."

Helen Geisel died on October 23, 1967. Eight months later, Ted Geisel later married Audrey Stone Dimond and continued to live and work at "The Tower" in La Jolla until his death in 1991.

The Dr. Seuss Collection documents the artistic and literary career of Theodor Seuss Geisel, popularly know as Dr. Seuss, from 1919 to 1995. Included are early drawings and writings; manuscripts, drawings and finished artwork for the majority of his children's books; manuscripts, drawings and storyboards for film, television and theatrical presentations; advertising artwork; manuscripts and drawings for magazine stories and cartoons; awards and memorabilia; fan mail; Seuss products; book promotion materials, and photographs. Notably absent from the collection is substantial correspondence from Geisel and manuscripts and drawings related to his books And To Think That I saw It on Mulberry Street, The Lorax, and Daisy-Head Mayzie.

SERIES 1: BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIAL

The BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIAL series contains the earliest known original drawings by Ted Geisel and also documents his military service during World War II. It is arranged in three subseries: A) Early Drawings and Artwork, B) High School and College Materials, and C) US Army Materials.

The Early Drawings and Artwork subseries contains the earliest examples of Geisel's drawings, including four titled ink drawings on paper (1926-1927) done while he was travelling in Europe after leaving Oxford University. Of interest are photographs of murals he designed for a children's playroom. The drawings are arranged chronologically.

The High School and College Materials subseries includes Geisel's wonderful Oxford University notebook (1925-1926), which contains lecture notes, abundant margin drawings, doodles and humorous jottings. Geisel's high school activities are documented by the program for a high school comedy he wrote and performed in called "Chicopee Surprised."

The US Army Materials document Geisel's service in the Army during World War II. Commissioned as a captain on December 31, 1942, Geisel was assigned to the Special Service Division in Hollywood where he helped produce films and pamphlets. The administrative files reflects his activities and projects and contains orders, vouchers for per diem reimbursement, memoranda and other miscellaneous documents. Memorabilia and documents from Geisel's trip to the European Theatre of Operations in late 1944 and early 1945 are also included in the subseries. Of particular interest is a collection of pencil-on-paper cartoons which take a humorous view of army life.

LeSieg, and Rosetta Stone. Notably absent from the collection are significant materials related to the books And To Think That I saw It on Mulberry Street, The Lorax, and Daisy-Head Mayzie. The series is arranged in four subseries: A) Drafts and Drawings, B) Book Dummies, C) Cut-Up Books and D) Unpublished Editorial Collaborations.

Also included are rough sketches for several unpublished projects such as "The Sad, Sad Story of the Obsks." The materials are arranged alphabetically by title. Within each title the materials are organized according to stages of production, from rough to finished.

Extant materials for individual titles vary. For early books, such as The Seven Lady Godivas and The King's Stilts, the extant drawings are finished pencil and gouache on board. Later books are typically represented by successive manuscript drafts of text, colored rough sketches and finished ink on board drawings which are subsequently photographed to produce prints which Geisel hand colored and numbered for the printer. For McElligot's Pool, Happy Birthday To You!, and I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today!, Geisel painted finished illustrations in gouache.

The Book Dummies subseries contains blank book samples that show cover cloth, paper weight, book size, board thickness and other binding variables.

In the Cut-Up Books subseries are published books from which Geisel clipped artwork and characters to use as color chart specifications. The books are arranged alphabetically by title.
