Google Doodle Marks Mary Leaky Legacy

Mary Leakey Honored By Google Doodle On Her 100th Birthday

Though Mary Leakey passed away in 1996, today would have marked her 100th birthday. Her legacy was honored by Google by placing the image of her and her beloved Dalmatians as the Google doodle for today.

As described by National Geographic, Mary Leakey was born as Mary Douglas Nicol during the early era of the theory of physical human evolution.

She plays a critical role in human history, for bringing to life the story of human history. Her discovery of Homo habilis “handy man” in 1960 marks the first known expert stone tool makers.

Her son now continues her legacy and continues his work in Africa in support of people and animals there.

PC Magazine described how Google wanted to honor Mary Leakey’s work and contribution to human evolution.
