A Little About Dr. Seuss

His real name was Theodore Seuss Geisel.  He was born March 2nd, 1904.  This is the story that was conveyed to me by my Children's Literacy professor during my undergraduate years. 

When Theodore S. Geisel went to university to get his Ph.D. in English Literature, he passed all of his courses, but was not granted a Ph.D. because he did not pass his final orals where he had to defend his thesis before a board.

So, Mr. Geisel bestowed upon himself the honorary title and nom de plum:  Dr. Seuss (using his middle name).

Personally, I think that it is a wonderful example of how one can defy the odds and become whatever one wants to become, despite the opinions of others.  In my opinion, he is a doctor--a doctor of some of the most rich and delightful children's literature ever written.
