Fridtjof Nansen gets a doodle for his birthday:

https://www.google.com/---/fridtjof-nansens-156th-birthday

I've read a lot about his feats in Arctic exploration, including the book Ninety Degrees North ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/12946344 ), and browsed some of his own memoirs as well, but the doodle and associated articles showed how many more things he was involved in through his life. Interesting character!

It's also the birthday of journalist Clare Hollingworth:

I was interested to learn about her as well - she hadn't crossed my radar as often as Nansen.
