Seuss on the Loose in Springfield

The early story of the man who would become the world famous children's book author known as Dr. Seuss is illustrated through family photographs from his childhood and genealogical information about the Seuss-Geisel family history.

The exhibition also includes photos and memorabilia from the Kalmbach & Geisel Brewery, the business founded by Ted's grandfather in 1876, and remarkable comparisons of his fanciful illustrations with actual photographs of places in Springfield that he would have known.

Seuss on the Loose in Springfield has been made possible, in part, by a generous donation from Peggy Owens, Theodor Seuss Geisel's niece, who, with her son Ted, loaned some of their precious family photographs for inclusion in the exhibition.
