Spirit of Snark San Francisco
This proposed project is of historical significance and value. The ship, SNARK, is a part of California's and San Francisco's Maritime Heritage and history. The SNARK was constructed and outfitted by two of San Francisco's turn-of-the-century shipyards — the ANDERSON and the CRYER yards. Preserving history preserves who we are. Jack London is one our American native-born San Francisco sons, who rose from the lowest income class to become one of the best known and respected authors in the world. The project to build the Jack London SNARK as part of the Jack London History will be to focus again on adventure and to come sail away on. . .The Spirit of SNARK with Jack London. – Toby Watson.

The Huntington Library states, "Joan (London) Miller, was born in Oakland, California, on January 15, 1901, and was the elder daughter of the author Jack London and his first wife, Bess (Maddern) London. Following graduation from Oakland High School, she attended the University of California, Berkeley, where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 1921.

On December 20, 1925, in Sacramento, she married Charles Malamuth, a Moscow correspondent for United Press International, but the marriage ended in divorce in 1930. Subsequently, the two were reconciled while in Moscow and they remarried, but they were separated in 1934 and divorced for the second time in 1935. Finally, Joan London married Charles Lortz Miller in April, 1952, and they resided in Berkeley and, later, Pleasant Hill, California, until Mr. Miller's death . . ."
