Nerds Everywhere Thank Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss first to use the word nerd

The first printed modern English use of the word nerd appeared in the Dr. Seuss book If I Ran the Zoo:

And then, just to show them,
I’ll sail to Ka-Troo
And Bring Back an It-Kutch, a Preep, and a Proo,
A Nerkle, a Nerd, and a Seersucker too!”
