Seuss’ first published work was And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, which he wrote with his wife Audrey Wood while they were living together in New York City during World War II. In 1950, after divorcing Wood, he married Helen Palmer, whom he had met through an ad she placed in Publishers Weekly. He also began writing under the pseudonym Theo LeSieg. His most famous works are probably How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and Green Eggs and Ham. Other well known titles include If I Ran the Zoo, Horton Hears A Who!, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, Fox in Socks, Oh Say Can You See?, Yertle the Turtle, Bumble Bugs Bunny, Hop on Pop, My Friend Rabbit, Big Bird: Little Bird, The Sneetches, The Lorax, Thing 1 & Thing 2, The Butter Battle Book, The Foot Book, Zootopia, and many others.
In addition to being a prolific writer, Dr. Seuss has been active in politics since the 1940s. During that time, he supported various liberal causes such as civil rights, environmentalism, antiwar activism, and opposition to nuclear weapons. He became involved in Democratic Party politics in 1952, serving as chairman of the California Young Democrats from 1953 until 1955. From 1954 to 1956, he served as national president of the National Education Association. He ran unsuccessfully for Congress twice, losing both times to Republican incumbent Richard M. Nixon. After retiring from public life, he continued to write political cartoons and short fiction.
Seuss died on February 24th, 1991 at age 87. He left behind more than 50 unpublished manuscripts, including several unfinished novels. Many of these have now been released posthumously, either as part of collections or stand-alone volumes. Some of them have even become bestsellers.
In 1998, Time magazine named him 1 among its “100 Most Important People” list. In 2002, Rolling Stone ranked him number 15 on its list of 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. In 2004, Entertainment Weekly listed him as 2 on its list of the 25 greatest cartoonists ever. In 2005, Newsweek included him in its top 10 list of America’s Best Writers.
