    On the morning of February 18, 1904, while the students were attending chapel, fire broke out in Dartmouth Hall. The original building, begun in 1784 and completed in 1791, had survived fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, candles, and oil lamps only to fall victim to faulty wiring. The temperature was minus 20 degrees that day, and the local volunteer fire department could not stop the blaze. The building burned to the ground in under two hours, leaving only two window frames behind.

    “Dr. Seuss” was the pen name of Theodor Seuss Geisel (1904-1991), who was a member of the Dartmouth Class of 1925. He wrote and illustrated 44 children's books, including such all-time favorites as Green Eggs and Ham and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. His works have provided the source for children's television specials, a Broadway musical, and a feature-length motion picture. His honors included two Academy awards, two Emmy awards, a Peabody award and the Pulitzer Prize.
