Replogle Globes was started by Luther Replogle (1902-1981) when, in 1930, he began selling globes which he crafted by hand in his apartment in Chicago, using maps from England. His vision was to make globes a common feature in people's households, rather than something found only in academic settings. Luther Replogle co-founded Scanglobe in 1963, purchased its remaining interest in 1988, and moved the company to the United States in 2003 as a Replogle brand.
Replogle makes metal globes, light-up globes (in glass [vintage], cardboard, and plastic), inflatable plastic globes, transparent globes, a cube-shaped globe, and a variety of globe stands. In addition to globes of Earth, Replogle also makes globes of Venus, Mars, the moon, and the celestial sphere.
