Springfield native, and renoenwed storyteller, Theodor Seuss Geisel ("Ted," "Doctor Seuss") was born on March 2, 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts. His impressive contributions to art and literature continue to be celebrated. Following Geisel’s death in 1991, his wife, Audrey, authorized the Springfield Museums to create the national memorial, and has been a major supporter throughout the project. Sculptor Lark Grey Dimond-Cates, who is also Geisel’s step-daughter, created the endearing bronze sculptures of Dr. Seuss and his most beloved characters featured at the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden at the Springfield Museums
