Jack London (People)

"Hi, I'm looking into Jack London and mercury poisioning."
"Um, third floor. Aisle nine."

Born in 1876, San Francisco native Jack London was one of the first writers to make a significant amount of money from his craft and is probably best known for his book Call of the Wild. His life and writings were shaped by many colorful experiences, including spending time in jail for vagrancy and being accused several times of plagiarism. As far as death by mercury poisoning, which this Hearst student is investigating, the jury's still out on that one. Officially, London died from acute renal failure, but others believe it could have been suicide or an overdose, among other theories.
