2 March 1904: Beloved author Theodor Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, was born. Dr. Seuss is most famous for his myriad illustrated children’s books published under his primary nom de plume of Dr. Seuss and others, such as Theo. LeSieg.

Along with his 70+ published books, Geisel produced political cartoons for various left-wing publications.
