A prolific writer and restless soul, Jack Kerouac authored several novels including "Dharma Bums",
"Big Sur", "Doctor Sax", and of course, "On the Road"—igniting the Beat generation. After much
worldly exploration, Jack settled in Florida with his wife Stella, and mother, where he died in 1969
at the age of 47.

"Kerouac Retrieved" is an exhibit of some of Jack's personal effects from his last home. A plaster
and wood crucifix, eclectic LP albums, assorted tchotchkes, his Lowell Tech jacket, and three
home made cat carriers are among the artifacts returned to his home town of Lowell, Massachusetts
for permanent display.
