Dartmouth College has named its medical school after a famous alum: Theodor "Ted" Geisel (gy-ZEL'), better known as Dr. Seuss.
Dartmouth said Wednesday that Geisel and his wife, Audrey, have been the most significant philanthropists in its history. The school is being named the Audrey and Theodor Geisel School of Medicine.
President Jim Yong Kim said Geisel, a 1925 graduate, lived out the Dartmouth ethos of thinking differently and creatively to illuminate the world's challenges, and the opportunities for understanding and surmounting them.
Audrey Geisel, who has a background as a nurse, said her husband would be proud to have his name forever connected to the school.
Geisel, who died in 1991, penned "The Cat in the Hat," "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," among many other children's classics.
