Dr. Seuss’ WWII Political Cartoons

Seuss as an author who wrote children’s books, but he did so much more in his career that may surprise you. Dr. Seuss, born Theodor Seuss Geisel, wrote over 60 books, selling over 200 million copies. Seuss graduated from Dartmouth and went to Oxford afterward, although, he left Oxford early without obtaining his intended Doctor of Philosophy, because he fell in love with a girl he met there and married her! After college, Seuss worked as a humorous writer for popular magazines, and as an ad illustrator for some of America’s largest corporations to support himself and his wife. Seuss was a self-described Democrat, and during the first several years of WWII, he worked with a far left publication in New York City named PM, where he began drawing cartoons in favor of the war against Hitler and Japan. During this time, Seuss also created posters for the American Treasury Department and the War Production Board.
