Jack London Research Center

Research Center

Established in 1991 with the financial support of Centenary alumnus and trustee Samuel P. Peters and with the substantial donations of memorabilia and archival materials from London's great-nephew Milo Shepard, the Jack London Research Center has attracted scholars not only from the United States (including the President of the Jack London Society) but also from abroad (including the President of the Jack London Society of Japan). Centenary's goal is to make this the world's largest repository for secondary materials: critical and biographical works related to America's greatest world author. These materials are available to Centenary students, several of whom have published articles about Jack London in international journals.
