Jack London Memorial at the Gravesite

A memorial will be held at Jack London State Historic Park on Saturday, November 17. Jack London died of kidney failure on November 22, 1916. In his short life he accomplished much, not only as a writer of fifty books, but also as an adventurer, reporter, war correspondent, sports article writer, and innovative farmer. He was in the process of developing a model ranch, destined to be the finest in California, when he died. He would have wished farming to be his true legacy, far beyond writing.
