Today's Google Doodle and Its Connection to Sandusky

Today's Google Doodle, on the Google search page, commemorates the 156th anniversary of the birth of Norwegian explorer and humanitarian Fridtjof Nansen.

What does a Norwegian polar explorer have to do with Sandusky? You will find a clue on the lower left of the Doodle, below the drawing of Mr. Nansen. The image of an ancient viking ship is used to symbolize the ship that Nansen and his crew used on his explorations around Greenland and the polar region. The name of his ship was the Fram, which was the namesake for the first literary journal of Sandusky High School and later the high school yearbook. The English translation of fram is forward.
