Dr. Seuss (Wikipedia)

No joke, any modern poet or rapper needs to stop for a minute and thank this man. What an amazing dude. From his Wiki entry:

"While at Dartmouth, Geisel was caught drinking gin with nine friends in his room, violating national Prohibition laws of the time.[4] As a result, the school insisted that he resign from all extracurricular activities. In order to continue his work on the Jack-O-Lantern without the administration's knowledge, Geisel began signing his work with the pen name "Seuss"; his first work signed as "Dr. Seuss" appeared after he graduated, six months into his work for humor magazine The Judge where his weekly feature Birdsies and Beasties appeared.[5] Geisel was encouraged in his writing by professor of Rhetoric W. Benfield Pressey, whom he described as his "big inspiration for writing" at Dartmouth.[6]"
