List Rules All people who have been in Google Doodles, listed in order from first to most recent

Every person who has ever been immortalized in a Google Doodle, in order from the very first to the most recent. The first Google Doodle appeared on the search engine homepage instead of the familiar colorful logo on August 30, 1998, in honor of Burning Man. It wasn't until 2001 that the very first real person was commemorated. In November of that year, a Google Doodle honored Claude Monet, artistically drawn in the style of the painter's famous water lilies. For more than a decade since, Google has celebrated artists, inventors, poets, musicians, activists, mathematicians, scientists, singers, architects, and hundreds of others who have made positive contributions to the world as we know it. Every famous person who has been in a Google Doodle is listed in the order in which his or her Doodle appeared on the famous website, along with the date - or multiple dates, when applicable. While most of these people were honored on their birthdays, many others have been recognized on important anniversaries of their work. There is also a picture of each person's Google Doodle, and videos for people like Freddie Mercury, Jules Verne, and Douglas Adams, whose Doodles were interactive.
