The digital collection spotlight for January 2014 features American author Jack London. He is the author of well-known adventure classics such as Call of the Wild and White Fang.
This selective small digital collection highlights his will, letters, and book inscriptions that offer insights into his complex relationships with the important women in his life: first wife Bessie, second wife Charmian, daughters Joan and Bess, mother Flora, "mammy" Jennie, and friend/collaborator Anna Strunsky.
Merrill-Cazier Library's Special Collections and Archives houses one of the largest Jack London manuscript collections in the world, second only to the prestigious Huntington Library in San Marino, California. Thanks to a series of purchases and donations from the London estate made between 1964 and 1971, USU is now proud to provide online access to selected material from the collection.
