Ted started Kindergarten at the age of four and a half in 1908. He attended Forest Park School and Sumner Avenue School located in the neighborhood of the Geisel family home on Fairfield Street. Ted read a lot as a child, loving books that had a creative use of language and humor. He also drew a lot, even as a young boy, and his parents encouraged his artistic expression.
Ted’s creativity with both words and images began to emerge during his high school years. At Central High School (later renamed Classical High), Ted enjoyed many extra-curricular activities and began submitting work to the school’s newspaper, The Central Recorder.
Ted went on to attend Dartmouth College, where he continued to develop his writing and artistic skills.
