Biography:

Philip Dey Eastman (USA, 1909-1986) author, illustrator, and filmmaker, worked so closely with Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss) that he is sometimes mistaken for him. He and Geisel both worked on the "Private Snafu" training films during WWII, and in the 1950's, Eastman worked on Seuss's "Gerald McBoing-Boing" for UPA Studios, where he also wrote cartoon scripts for the nearsighted Mr. Magoo. Eastman and Seuss also collaborated on the Cat in the Hat Dictionary for Beginner Books.
