Wednesday, February 12, 2020: Close-Up on Seuss

The photos below were taken during a drizzly afternoon at the Springfield Museum’s Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden. This enchanting public art installation, featuring Dr. Seuss’s most beloved characters, is the work of artist Lark Grey Dimond-Cates who is also Theodor Geisel’s step-daughter. Horton the Elephant, the subject of all but one close-up, was not harmed during the photography session.

Classical High School History and Exteriors

Other illustrious alumni besides Theodor Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss who has an entire museum devoted to him across the street) are: Taj Mahal, William Manchester, and Timothy Leary. As far as I can tell, the Leary Museum keeps a very low profile.

The present atrium was created by removing the high school’s auditorium seating and floor, and exposing the lunchroom in the former basement. The grand staircase was added as part of the conversion to luxury apartments that began in 1986.
