This sculpture suffered a break in its rear leg which has since been expertly glued back, otherwise, the work is in overall good condition. It is 4 ¼ inches high by 5 ¾ inches wide. Theodor Seuss Giesel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss (1904 – 1991) The child of Bavarian immigrants in Massachusetts, Theodor Seuss Giesel first adopted his pen name in college. After caught drinking gin during Prohibition, the Dean of Dartmouth College striped young Theodor Giesel of any further participation in school’’ ’’s humor magazine, Jack-O-Lantern , of which Giesel was the editor. To circumvent the punishment, Giesel continued to produce work for the magazine, but signed with his mother’’’’s maiden name, “Seuss” (accurately pronounced “Zoice”). After graduating college, and quitting an Oxford Ph.D. program, Seuss became a magazine cartoonist. By 1928, he settled on what became his best known moniker, “Dr. Seuss,” a tongue-in-cheek reference his status as a Ph.D. dropout. For many years he scrapped by as a cartoonist, but he got his first real break-through drawing what became incredibly popular advertisements for Flit bug spray. The catchphrase for the ads, “Quick. Henry. The Flit!” spread like wildfire, and was used in humorous commentary everywhere from radio shows to other cartoons. Seuss’’’’ advertising work continued to be his main source of income for several decades. While Seuss’’’’ published his first children’’’’s book, “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” in 1937, he was not an immediate success in the arena. That book was initially declined by dozens of publishers, but Seuss continued to write for children. In his children’’’’s stories, he regularly infused subtle commentary on the prejudices of the world around him. In the 1940s and on, Seuss’’’’ stories helped guide children away from fascism, racist politics, and everyday prejudices. His most prized works, published in the late 1950s, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” and “The Cat in the Hat,” featured characters based on Seuss himself. When Dr. Seuss passed away in 1991, he left a legacy as one of America’’’’s most popular poets, illustrators, and teachers.
