Dr. Seuss Goes to War

When most people think of Dr. Seuss they think of children’s books such as The Cat in the Hat and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. What most don’t know was that he was also a very active political cartoonist.

However, from 1940 to 1948 Dr. Seuss (whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel) penned over 400 editorial cartoons for the New York newspaper the PM.

The University of California at San Diego has a massive collection of his political cartoons from that time available to be viewed online.
