Dartmouth Medical School named for Dr. Seuss and wife

Dartmouth College announced this morning that its medical school will be renamed the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth in honor of the beloved illustrator and author Theodor Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, and his wife, Audrey.

Ted Geisel was a graduate of the class of 1925, and the family has given more money to the college during Geisel’s lifetime and since his death in 1991 than any other philanthropist, according to a Dartmouth press release.
