Moby Dick's 161st Anniversary

Herman Melville’s books were the focus of Thursday’s Google doodle, which celebrated the 161st anniversary of Moby Dick’s release.

The author was born in New York City in 1819, and his early life mostly consisted of odd jobs related to working on seaways and ships, including work on a whaling ship that he deserted from and another where he participated in a mutiny.
