The Jack London Symposium at Stanford on Sept. 19, included a a curated pop-up exhibit of Jack London's books, objects, and memorabilia. This special exhibit considered the cult of celebrity surrounding Jack London in the twentieth century, and the hold that he continues to have on the western imagination. The exhibition was made possible by a loan from the private collections of Sarah and Darius Anderson of Sonoma.

While the exhibition closed with the symposium, this online gallery takes you on a tour of the collection and the author's fascinating life. Click the thumbnails below to view a slide show of images and commentary by the art historian Natalie Pellolio, curator of the pop-up exhibit.
