Author Study
John Griffith (1876-1916) was born in San Francisco of
an unmarried mother of wealthy background, Flora
Wellman.
Because Flora was ill, Jack was raised through infancy
by an ex-slave, Virginia Prentiss.
He did not know his biological father.
Late in 1876, Flora married John London, a partially
disabled Civil War veteran. The family moved around
the Bay area before settling in Oakland, where Jack
completed grade school.
п‚Ў
As an adolescent, the boy adopted the name of Jack.
п‚Ў
He worked at various hard labor jobs, pirated for oysters
on San Francisco Bay, served on a fish patrol to capture
poachers, sailed the Pacific on a sealing ship, joined
Kelly's Army of unemployed working men, hoboed
around the country, and returned to attend high school
at age 19.
п‚Ў
He spent the winter of 1897 in the Yukon territory. This
provided the metaphorical gold for his first stories, which
he began publishing in the Overland Monthly in 1899.
п‚Ў
From that point he was a highly disciplined writer, who
would produce over fifty volumes of stories, novels, and
political essays.
п‚Ў
London was among the most publicized figures of his
day, and he used this celebrity to endorse his support of
socialism, women's suffrage, and eventually, prohibition.
п‚Ў
He was among the first writers to work with the movie
industry, and saw a number of his novels made into
films.
п‚Ў
Later, London's great love became agriculture, and he
often stated he wrote to support his Beauty Ranch in
Glen Ellen.
п‚Ў
Often troubled by physical ailments, during his thirties
London developed kidney disease of unknown origin.
п‚Ў
He died of kidney failure on November 22, 1916 on the
ranch.
Exposure to the cruel realities of life.
п‚Ў Exposure to hard work and the cruel realities of life. He was from a
working-class family and had several jobs throughout his life. In
1895 he attended Oakland High School and later the University of
California at Berkeley but had to leave before finishing the year due
to lack of funds and the need to support himself financially.
His desire to change is life for the better.
 Desire to change his life for the better. “Early I discovered
enthusiasm, ambition, and ideals; and to satisfy these became the
problem of my child-life.”
The Love of the Wild
п‚Ў He loved horseback riding and life on the ranch that he knew so
well from his childhood. In 1905 he purchased land in Glen Ellen in
the Sonoma County Valley of California which would eventually be
part of his fourteen-hundred acre "Beauty Ranch".
