During World War II, nine men were hired by the army to write certain documents. Stan Lee, who you probably know is the godfather of all things Marvel, was among them. When he joined the army, he was given the official classification of “playwright.” Others in his group were Dr. Seuss, William Saroyan, and Frank Capra. His job was mostly to make pamphlets about avoiding catching venereal diseases.
Dr. Seuss, or Theodor Geisel, is the world renowned writer of many famous children’s books, including The Cat in the Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Horton Hears a Who, and The Lorax.
Frank Capra was a famous film director active throughout the 30s and 40s. His most notable work is arguably Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. William Saroyan was an American author and playwright very popular in the middle of the 20th century. He wrote dozens of books and plays, most of which were centered on Armenian American life in California.
