Special Presentation

Doc Stull Presents:  It’s How You Play the Game:  Jack London’s Timeless Themes in Sport

JackLondonTimelessThemesSport

Doc Stull’s highly entertaining presentation/show about Jack London.  Besides writing fifty books and hundreds of short stories in areas as diverse as adventure, science fiction and politics, London was an avid sportsman and was one of the fathers of American sport fiction.  Jack wrote about sailing, boxing, surfing, tramping, natural living, and the larger themes of age vs. youth, competition, corruption and the “love of the game.”  And, he was a boxing writer who covered the “Fight of the Century” – Jack Johnson’s defeat of Jim Jeffries as the first African-American heavyweight champion in 1910.

Jack London’s A Royal Sport (1907) magazine article  was responsible for a Southern California surfing craze more than 100 years ago.  His book  of tramping experiences The Road (1908)  inspired Jack Kerouac’s classic On the Road a half a century later.

Doc  gives a history lesson highlighted with dramatic readings and poetry – Doc plays the uke and sings songs of the era, too!  Doc’s program, first given at Jack London Historic Park in June of 2013 is available for events, fund-raisers (both public and private) and can be tailored anywhere between half and hour to two hours – and always entertaining!

Doc is a special events presenter and docent/tour leader at Jack London State Historic Park in Glen Ellen, California.   See the Jack London link on this website for Doc’s biographical connection to Jack London.

“Alexis Arguello:  El Flaco Explosivo” by Doc Stull in El Sol Bilingue, November, 2013

One of the greatest fighters of all time Nicaragua’s Alexis Arguello was beloved in the Americas for his class and courage in the ring as well as his love for his people.  His tragic end in 2009 was a great loss to his family, countrymen and the sports world who came to cherish, love and respect this “beloved warrior” for his courage in and out of the ring.
