Dr. Seuss Widow Donates Millions to UC San Diego

(Tony Perry in San Diego)

We all remember the legendary author Dr. Seuss author, Theodor Geisel. His catchy books such as The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham brings us back to our childhood memories, as we learned how to read while building a wild imagination through his fun and artistic illustrations.

Audrey Geisel, widow of Dr. Seuss author, donated $2million dollars to UC San Diego for its new renovation project, the University House-the private residence of the UC San Diego Chancellor.

Geisel and her late husband has built a long-lasting relationship with the campus by donating many memorabilia  to the campus. In honor of their generous donations over the years, in 1995 the library was named after Theodor Geisel.

As the university is celebrating their 50th anniversary, the donation comes as a big surprise! Officials hope the renovations begin next year and be completed in the summer of 2012.
