Josiah Flynt (properly Josiah Flynt Willard) (January 23, 1869 – January 20, 1907) was an American sociologist and author.

Born at Appleton, Wisconsin, he was educated at the University of Berlin in 1890–1895. After several years of experience as a professional vagrant he published in 1899 Tramping with Tramps, a picaresque study. His further works dealing with the lower and criminal classes include The Powers that Prey (1900), a collection of short stories written in collaboration with Francis Walton; Notes of an Itinerant Policeman (1900); The World of Graft (1901), a volume of short stories and The Little Brother (1902), his only sustained attempt in fiction.
