Jack London was a visitor to Dawson City, Yukon Territory.


Jack London was born on January 12, 1876.  By age 30, London was internationally famous for his books Call of the Wild (1903), The Sea Wolf (1904) and other literary and journalistic accomplishments.

Though he wrote passionately about the great questions of life and death and the struggle to survive with dignity and integrity, he also sought peace and quiet inspiration. His stories of high adventure were based on his own experiences at sea, in the Yukon Territory, and in the fields and factories of California.  His writings appealed to millions worldwide. [1]

Murdoch of the Klondike

  • Jack and Murdoch first met in prison after both apparently caused trouble. Uniting, they decided to solve the puzzling case together. He assisted William Murdoch's investigation into a double murder connected to mining by dredging. His last name was not revealed until the end of the episode. During a conversation between Murdoch and London, Murdoch used the phrase "the call of the wild," which London later used as the title of a novel.
