Curious and Remarkable


Doodle
Who is the odd looking woman celebrated in today's Google doodle? 

Mary Anning was an English  fossil collector, dealer, and palaeontologist. Her major discoveries were the ichthyosaur and plesiosaur. While Mary was well-known in the scientific community of 19th century England, gender and social class kept her from fully participating. She was often not given credit for her discoveries and contributions.

There are several books about Anning in the AFPL system. The following are available at Ocee. Chevalier is also on CD.
