Ted was originally from Springfield, Massachusetts where his father managed the local brewery. He attended Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, graduated in 1925 and headed off to Oxford. While there, he met Helen Parker, whom he would eventually marry. She convinced him to give up his dream of becoming an English teacher and pursue his passion for drawing.

By the way, his name is Dr. Seuss because his middle name is Seuss.
