The UC San Diego Library is proud to feature a new exhibition of selected original drawings by beloved children’s author, Theodor Seuss Geisel, on the main floor of the Geisel Library at UC San Diego through October 19, 2014. The new exhibit, Dr. Seuss’s Boids & Beasties, showcases his whimsical and fantastical creatures, and creative talent.
The Library’s Special Collections & Archives is home to the renowned Dr. Seuss Collection. The Dr. Seuss Collection contains original drawings, sketches, proofs, notebooks, manuscript drafts, books, audio- and videotapes, photographs, and memorabilia. The approximately 8,500 items in the collection document the full range of Dr. Seuss’s creative achievements, beginning in 1919 with his high school activities and ending with his death in 1991.
The Dr. Seuss Collection is often featured in library exhibitions, including those celebrating the naming of Geisel Library in December, 1995, and annually for Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2.
