This Day in Boston History
March 2nd, 1904
Theodore Seuss Geisel
On this day, Theodore
Seuss Geisel was born in Springfield. Writing under the pseudonym, “Dr.
Seuss”, he published such classic children’s books as Green
Eggs and Ham, the Grinch
Who Stole Christmas, and the Lorax. For many, it was one of Geisel’s
books that inspired their lifelong interest in reading,
Geisel has been
recognized with several prestigious awards, including the Pulitzer Prize.
The Springfield Library & Museums Association will unveil the Dr.
Seuss National Memorial on June 1, 2002. This week long celebration
will include sculptures, a storytelling marathon and a parade along
Mulbury Street, which was immortalized in Geisel’s first book, And To
Think That I Saw It On Mulbury Street.
