Mohammed Daoud (1901-1984) was a Moroccan writer and historian and a major nationalist in Northern Morocco during its struggle for independence from occupation by Spanish forces. He was the author of the twelve volume Tarikh Titwan (History of Tetouan) and a publisher of the magazine Es-Salam.

Daoud tutored both the caliph, Muley Hassan ben el Mehdi and Ahmed Belbachir Haskouri in Tetuan's palace where they both grew up.[1]

In 1923, Daoud became the head of a secondary school founded by El Haj Abdesselam Bennouna. He was also a prominent member of the Human Rights League in Tetouan and the Hispano-Musulmane Association.[2]
