Biographical / Historical
Jack London (1876-1916) was a famous American author and journalist.
Jack London was born John Griffith Chaney in January 12, 1876 in San Francisco, California. As a child he had a thirst for knowledge that was consistently at odds with the hard labor he was ordered to perform. In 1896 he attended the University of California Berkeley, but due to financial problems he had to leave in 1897. He then left to Klondike to participate in the Klondike Gold Rush where he developed scurvy. He was most famous for writing The Call of the Wild, White Fang, To Build a Fire, An Odyssey of the North, Love of Life, and many other stories. London married Elizabeth "Bessie" Maddern on April 7, 1900. However, in 1904 they got a divorced. He married once again in 1905 to Charmian Kittredge. He died November 22, 1916.
