Josephine Dodge Daskam Bacon

February 17, 1876 - July 29, 1961

Josephine Daskam Bacon (Mrs. Selden Bacon) (born: Josephine Dodge Daskam) was an American writer of great versatility. She is chiefly known as a writer who made the point of having female protagonists.

Bacon wrote a series of juvenile mysteries, short stories, 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".

She wrote on women's issues and women's roles as well. She was a pioneer in the Girl Scouts movement and compiled the guidebook used by that organization.
