About Helen Palmer
Helen Palmer was an actress and author. She attended Oxford University where she met her future husband, Theodor Seuss Geisel, known as Dr. Seuss, who also went to Oxford. The couple married in 1926 but had no children. A tremendous influence on her husband's life, she recommended that he become an artist and not a teacher. Returning to the United States, Geisel did just that, drawing magazine illustrations and advertisements for well-known major corporations, thus supporting them through the Great Depression.
Palmer wrote books and combined photographs with them. Her book A Fish Out of Water, though, was illustrated by P.D. Eastman. Her most well known book is Do You Know What I'm Going to Do Next Saturday?, published in 1963.
During her mid-fifties, Palmer became increasingly ill, and after thirteen years of sicknesses and cancer, she died on October 23, 1967.
A public library in La Jolla, CA is named in her honor.
