Josephine Daskam Bacon (Mrs. Selden Bacon) (born: Josephine Dodge Daskam) (February 17, 1876 – July 29, 1961) was an American writer of great versatility. She is chiefly known as a writer who made the point of having female protagonists.
Josephine Dodge Daskam was born on February 17, 1876, in Stamford, Connecticut. She later married Seldon Bacon.
Bacon wrote a series of juvenile mysteries, as well as works dealing with more serious themes. She published books of poetry, which were well received by critics; as noted by one critic, some of her poetry was set to music. She was published under the name "Josephine Daskam".
Bacon graduated from Smith College in 1898. She published a collection of ten short stories inspired by her experiences in 1900, intending "to deepen...the rapidly growing conviction that the college girl is very much like any other girl."
