Caroline Dale Snedeker

Caroline Dale Snedeker (1871-1956), also known as Carolyn Dale Snedeker or Caroline Dale Owen, was an American writer, primarily of novels for young adults. Two of her books, Downright Dencey and The Forgotten Daughter, were Newbery Honor recipients.

She was born on March 23, 1871 in New Harmony, Indiana, to Charles A. Parke and Nina Dale Owen. Her great-grandfather was Robert Owen, one of Britain’s first social reformers and industrialists. She grew up near Mount Vernon, Indiana, in a family with three sisters. They later moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, where Snedeker attended the College of Music. She and her sisters performed instrumental concerts to support the family after her father died. Caroline was the pianist in the group and later became a music instructor. She married Charles H. Snedeker in 1903, and they moved to Hempstead, New York. She later moved to Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, and died on January 22, 1956, at the age of 84. Her body was buried at Live Oak Cemetery in Harrison County, Mississippi.
