Today, the Google Doodle celebrates Harry Houdini’s 137th birthday. The legendary escape artist, is featured on a vibrant ticket in place of the normal Google logo on the search engine’s main page.
Clicking on the Doodle will take you to a search query for Harry Houdini. He is a legendary man who is definitely worth learning about. I remember being fascinated by him as a kid and still am today. To think all the books I could find on his performances as a kid are all captured on the Harry Houdini Wikipedia entry. While 137 seems like an odd year to celebrate, Google is making the most of this talented man. He was born March 24, 1874 and died October 31, 1926.
