A Bellefontaine alum is getting worldwide attention today.

Monday’s Google Doodle celebrates the life of Marie Tharp, an American geologist and oceanographic cartographer who co-published the first world map of the ocean floors.

The interactive Doodle explores Tharp’s career and is narrated by Caitlyn Larsen, Rebecca Nesel, and Dr. Tiara Moore. These three women are living out Tharp’s legacy by making strides in the traditionally male-dominated ocean science and geology spaces.

You can watch the narration at

Tharp graduated from BHS in 1938. She passed away in 2006.
