At the Jack London symposium at Stanford University on Sept. 19, the scholars Sara Hodson and Jeanne Reesman presented the renowned writer's globe-spanning photographic work. London's reporting and photojournalism took him from the slums of East London to the battlefields of the Russo-Japanese War, and he provided some of the first eyewitness reporting on the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
