Dartmouth Winter Carnival theme honors Dr. Seuss

The Associated Press

HANOVER — Dartmouth College is again honoring one of its most famous graduates with the theme of this year's Winter Carnival: Seuss on the Loose.

Colorful posters advertising this weekend's event show the Grinch suspended by ropes over a frozen pond. It's the fourth time carnival planners have honored Dr. Seuss's literary legacy by making his characters part of the carnival theme.

Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Geisel, graduated from Dartmouth in 1925. Donald Pease, a Dartmouth professor and Dr. Seuss scholar, says Geisel loved the carnival and sometimes invited his family to join him for the annual celebration of winter sports.
