Dr. Seuss goes to war

Before Dr. Seuss wrote children’s books he was a political cartoonist. As a captain in the US Army during the war he penned many comics and made movies supporting the war effort. The Donald W. Hamer Maps Library has a few examples of his work from this period, including a cartoon about “Ann” a mosquito with malaria. — Heather Ross, manager, Donald W. Hamer Maps Library
