Dr. Seuss Net Worth: Dr. Seuss was an American writer, cartoonist and poet who had a net worth of $75 million. Born Theodor Seuss Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904, he had several pen names including Theo LeSieg, Rosetta Stone, and Theophrastus Seuss. He is known for his popular poetic children's books: Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, The Lorax, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and many more. His best-selling books have inspired several animated versions as well as Broadway musicals of his imaginative children's stories, and his birthday has been officially recognized as National Read Across America Day. Seuss attended Dartmouth University and was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon. He worked for Dartmouth Jack-O-Lantern magazine and eventually became editor-in-chief. He began using the name "Seuss" after being caught drinking with some of his college friends and forced to disengage in extracurricular activities. He continued to write for the magazine under "Seuss" and was encouraged by several of his professors. Following Dartmouth, Seuss attended Lincoln College in Oxford for his PhD in English Literature. Seuss also spent some time drawing political cartoons for PM, a New York City daily newspaper, during World War II. He returned to writing children's books after relocating to La Jolla, California with his wife. He never received the Newbury or Caldecott Awards but was nominated several times. He received an honorary doctorate from Dartmouth in 1956, which was when he added "Dr." to his pen name. He has also received the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal and a special Pulitzer Prize in 1984. Seuss died of oral cancer in La Jolla, California on September 24, 1991. Several honors and memorials have been inspired by him and his work.
