From the Marshall Bond Papers (WA MSS S-2358) ; the Marshall Bond Papers document the life of gold miner and adventurer Marshall Bond (1867-1941), and his family, especially his father, Hiram G. Bond, and his son, Marshall Bond, Jr. The papers span the years 1869-1976, with the bulk falling between 1897 and 1935. Bond’s Klondike experience is well documented by his diary from 1897-98, letters to his family, draft chapters of a memoir about his experiences, and photographs. The photographs include one of the dog who inspired Jack London’s novel The Call of the Wild; several of the Bond family’s California home, on which London based the setting for the beginning of the novel; and forty-five commercially produced photos of the Klondike region and Dawson by E. A. Hegg and other photographers.
