Founding Father Benjamin Franklin’s 311th Birth Anniversary — In Lieu Of Google Doodle.

by Anura Guruge


It is hard to credit BUT there has yet to be a Google Doodle for Benjamin Franklin!

Go figure.

Ditto as that for Alexander Hamilton.

Yes, I appreciate that Google wants to remain apolitical when it comes to its Doodles but the “Founding Fathers” aren’t exactly what you would class as political.

Alexander Hamilton’s Birthday — Today, January 11: Event Not Marked By A Google Doodle.

Yes, today, January 11th is his birthday. He was born January 11, 1755.

Yes, it is the musical, a runaway success, that has made him truly famous — though he was a Founding Father & the 1st United States Secretary of the Treasury.

There has NEVER been a Google Doodle for Alexander Hamilton. It appears that Google avoids doing political figures — though there have been Google Doodle’s Nelson Mandela & Martin Luther King. I would think they would make an exception when it came to the Founding Fathers and Winston Churchill.
