George S Pelton (fl. 1905-1915) was a businessman and investor who entered into agreements with Jack London and Joseph J Noel
regarding the dramatic rights to The Sea Wolf. He also invested with Cecil B. DeMille in various productions of plays. These agreements and investments were all the subject
of disputes, which are reflected in the correspondence contained in this collection.
