“You have brains in your head, and feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” Dr. Seuss
Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American writer and illustrator best known for authoring popular children’s books under the pen name Dr. Seuss.Wikipedia
Died: September 24, 1991, La Jolla, CA
What is perhaps the least known about Dr. Seuss is that he was a caregiver for his first wife, Helen Palmer Geisel, who was also a children’s book author. For several years during perhaps his most productive writing phase, Helen, suffered from several chronic illnesses including battling cancer. While Helen helped guide Theodor’s talents of his whimsical drawings of animals and the telling of their stories, Geisel gave his muse the love and care she needed throughout their marriage until her death in 1967.
