Dr. Seuss's real name is Theodor Seuss Geisel. He went to college at Dartmouth College. While at Dartmouth, Dr. Seuss and nine of his friends were caught drinking gin. This made his lose his privilege on the college's humor magazine. Therefore, he was forced to write books under different names. These cartoons are the first time he signed his named Seuss. He had a long journey writing cartoons and ads before he became a published children's author. Two of my favorite children's books by Dr. Seuss are How The Grinch Stole Christmas and The Lorax.
