Kathryn Irene Glascock (1901 – February 23, 1923) was an American Poet. The Kathryn Irene Glascock Intercollegiate Poetry Contest is named after her.


Glascock was born in 1901, the daughter of Hugh Grundy Glascock, an educator, and Etta (or Ella) Bodine Woods. Glascock graduated from Mount Holyoke College in 1922.[1]


Glascock died in 1923. In that same year, her parents established the annual Kathryn Irene Glascock Intercollegiate Poetry Contest at Mount Holyoke College (it became an intercollegiate event in 1924).

In addition, Glascock's parents also published a collection of her poetry entitled, Poems, and had one of her poems, "Daylight," published in Poetry Magazine.
