Salute to Seuss

March 2, 2009 marks the 105th birthday of Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel, creator of the “Cat in the Hat”, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, and countless other wonderful stories.  

He won a Pulitzer prize in 1984, and according to the Pulitzer board, did so “for his contribution over nearly half a century to the education and enjoyment of America’s children and their parents.”

Although best remembered for his children’s books and stories, Seuss produced scathing anti-fascist political cartoons during WWII.

Dr. Seuss passed away on September 24, 1991, at La Jolla, CA.
