Description
This collection consists of 45 letters, primarily from Jack London and his wife, Charmian London, and 15 pieces of ephemera.
Background
Jack London (1876-1916) was an American author best known for his fiction about California, Alaska, and the Pacific. His novel The call of the wild is among the most internationally popular works by an American. An autodidact, he directed his thirst for knowledge toward several passions, including sailing, ranching, and photography. He traveled widely, to Hawaii and throughout the South Pacific, through California, Oregon, Nevada, to Korea during the Russo-Japanese war, Mexico during the Mexican Civil War, and London, England, experiences which are reflected in his writing and his photographs.
