About this site
This site is sponsored by the Jack London Society, a scholarly organization. Its purpose is to provide information about the JLS and other information that the moderators, Kenneth Brandt and Donna Campbell, believe will be of interest to those interested in Jack London or the JLS.
The Jack London Society receives information and posts it at the behest of the members and the discretion of the site moderators. Notices of events or of changes in venue, dates, or scheduling are posted only if the organizers send this information to the site. The Jack London Society is not responsible or legally liable for any errors or changes later made to plans posted to this site.
This is not primarily a discussion board for talking about Jack London’s works; for that, you should subscribe to the Jack London listserv.
All comments are moderated. Queries and replies of general interest such as notices of new books, performances of London’s work, new discoveries on London, and material useful to JLS members will be posted, but we reserve the right to determine this.
We expect that comments will be respectful in tone. Comments that are defamatory toward individuals or institutions, that seek to start a discussion of inflammatory topics, or that promote books for sale or events only tangentially related to the purpose of the site will not be posted.

The Soul of California
I have a pair of sterling napkin rings purchased by my maternal grandmother in the 1970’s reputed to have belonged to Jack and Carmian given to him by his mother. Is it at all possible to authenticate them through a photograph or letter or some other means of documentation?
