Delia Bacon

Delia Bacon, from a daguerreotype taken in 1853. Delia Salter Bacon (February 2, 1811 – September 2, 1859) was an American writer of plays and short stories and Shakespeare scholar. She is best known for her work on the authorship of Shakespeare's plays, which she attributed to social reformers including Francis Bacon (to whom she was unrelated), Sir Walter Raleigh and others.

Bacon's research in Boston, New York, and London led to the publication of her major work on the subject, ''The Philosophy of the Plays of Shakspere Unfolded.'' Her admirers included authors Harriet Beecher Stowe, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Ralph Waldo Emerson, the last of whom called her "America's greatest literary producer of the past ten years" at the time of her death.
