Margaret Deland (née Margaretta Wade Campbell) (February 23, 1857 - January 13, 1945) was an American novelist, short-story writer, and poet. She also wrote an autobiography in two volumes.


She was born in Allegheny, Pennsylvania (today a part of Pittsburgh). In 1880, she married Lorin F. Deland, and the couple moved to Boston, Massachusetts. Over a four year span, they took in and supported unmarried mothers; it was at this period she began to write. Her poetry collection The Old Garden was published in 1886. Deland received a Litt.D. from Bates College in 1920.

She is known principally for the novel John Ward, Preacher (1888), and her 'Old Chester' books, based on her early memories of Maple Grove and Manchester, Pittsburgh communities where she grew up. She resided in Boston at 76 Mount Vernon Street on Beacon Hill, while maintaining a summer home, Greywood, overlooking the Kennebunk River in Kennebunkport, Maine.

Deland died in Boston at the Hotel Sheraton, where she then lived, in 1945.
