R. MICHELSON GALLERIES PRESENTS
National Touring Exhibition
Dr. Seuss's private hat collection to tour for the first time in history.
February 24th - March 8th, 2014
Theodor Seuss Geisel was born in 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts and graduated Dartmouth College. In the late 1920's he began working for a magazine called Judge, the leading humor magazine in America at the time, submitting both cartoons and humorous articles for them. Additionally, he was submitting cartoons to Life, Vanity Fair and Liberty.
In May of 1954, Life Magazine published a report concerning illiteracy among school children. The report said, that children were having trouble learning to read because their books were boring. This inspired Geisel's publisher, who sent him a list of 250 words he felt were important, and asked him to write a book. Nine months later, Geisel, using 220 of the words given to him, published The Cat in the Hat, which went on to instant success.
At the time of Theodor Seuss Geisel's death in 1991, his 46 children's books had sold more than 200 million copies, and his last, Oh, the Places You'll Go!, was still on the bestseller lists. His books, which he both illustrated and wrote, have been translated into twenty languages as well as Braille. (Read More)
