We all know Jack London. The thrilling adventurous author who wrote “Call of the Wild” and “White Fang,” but how many of us know the woman behind the man? The one who selflessly promoted her husband’s career over her own. If it wasn’t for Charmain London, Jack would not be a household name.

Born in 1871, she was raised by an aunt, Netta Earnes who was a staunch feminist and vegetarian, Charmian became a modern woman. At a time when it was more than enough for a woman to get a high school education, Charmian got a bachelor’s degree.

Charmian was a woman who did it all. A secretary, a notable pianist, photographer and editor for her aunt and uncle’s monthly newspaper. She was a woman who couldn’t slow down.

It wasn’t until 1904 that her romance with Jack blossomed. Friends for a few years before they began their affair and were married after his divorce from his first wife. Charmian put her own career on hold so that she could support her husband.
