Jack London
Jack London (1876-1916) American novelist and short story writer.
Jack London wrote popular adventure stories and social tracts based on his unusual personal experiences and is recognized as one of the most dynamic figures in American literature.
London spent his first twenty-three years as an adventurer and a vagabond, but in 1899, after years of fitful trying, he finally began to achieve success as a writer. By 1910, London was America's most famous and best-selling author, and the first American writer ever to become a millionaire. Before his death in 1916, London wrote nearly two-dozen novels--some of which have become classics of American literature--as well as hundreds of short stories. Today London is remembered as both one of America's greatest adventure writers of all time and one of the most widely translated American authors.
The Henry E. Huntington Library in San Marino, California, houses the largest collection of Londoniana, including the major portion of London's manuscripts and letters, as well as scrapbooks, most of London's personal library, and Charmain London's diaries. The Merrill Library at Utah State University in Logan, Utah, has the second largest collection of London materials, including many letters, some manuscripts and notes, along with a significant portion of Charmian London's correspondence. The New York Public Library houses London's correspondence with George P. Brett and the Macmillan Company, as well as some manuscripts.
