Remembrances of the Jack London Ranch

When Jack London died in 1916, the responsibility of caring for the ranch fell on Jack's widow, Charmian London, and  his step-sister and ranch superintendent, Eliza London Shepard. When Charmian died in 1955, Eliza’s son, Irving Shepard, inherited the vast Jack London Ranch having, taken over his mother’s position before she died in 1939.

The history of the Jack London Ranch period after Jack London’s death is not well known. This presentation of Jack London Ranch history will  cover the period from the mid 1930’s until 1977. You will hear first hand accounts from Shepard family descendants and from others who had direct contact with the ranch and knew Charmian London, Eliza London Shepard, Irving and Mildred Shepard, and the Shepard children. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions at this special, first of its kind event. Refreshments will be served.
