Biographical history

Kerouac, Jack (b. Jean Louis Lebris de Kerouac) (Jean-Louis, Jean Louis Incognito, John Kerouac, pen-names.) Born in Lowell, Mass. He studied at Columbia University (1940-42), and served in the Merchant Marine (1942; 1943) and the Navy (1943). Later he studied at the New School for Social Research (1948-49). He lived with his mother in Lowell, held a variety of jobs, and traveled throughout the United States and Mexico. The publication of On the Road (1957), an autobiographical tale of his wanderings with Neal Cassady, established his reputation as a spokesman for the Beat Generation. His last major work, Big Sur (1962), described the price he paid for success, and he lived out his final years back in Lowell with his mother.
