On This Day in American History
On March 12, 1922, author Jack Kerouac is born in Lowell, Massachusetts. After serving in the U.S. Navy briefly and as a merchant marine during World War II, Kerouac began traveling around the U.S. and Mexico in the late 1940s. He wrote about his travels in his first book, The Town and the City , but it wasn’t until 1957 that he wrote his most widely known book, On the Road . That book established Kerouac as a leading voice among the so-called Beat Generation. Kerouac died in 1967.

Jack Kerouac is born in Lowell, Massachusetts. Kerouac was the son of French-Canadian parents and learned English as a second language. In high school, Kerouac was a star football player and won a scholarship to Columbia University.

In World War II, he served in the Navy but was expelled for severe personality problems that may have been symptoms of mental illness. He became a merchant seaman. In the late 1940s, he wandered the U.S. and Mexico and wrote his first novel, The Town and the City. It was not until 1957, when he published On the Road, an autobiographical tale of his wanderings, that he became famous as a seminal figure of the Beat Generation. His tale of a subculture of poets, folk singers, and eccentrics who smoked marijuana and rejected conformist society was written in just three weeks. The book is filled with other Beat figures, including Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs.

Kerouac wrote five more books before his death in 1967 in St. Petersburg, Florida. However, none gained the mythic status of On the Road.
