The Bacheller Syndicate was founded in 1885 by Irving Bacheller; it was the first modern American newspaper syndicate. The Bacheller firm primarily supplied stories to the Sunday supplements of American newspapers; its clients included prominent English writers like Rudyard Kipling, Joseph Conrad, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, as well as American writers like Hamlin Garland and Stephen Crane, among many others.

The Bacheller Syndicate handled two of L. Frank Baum's early short stories, "My Ruby Wedding Ring" (1896) and "How Scroggs Won the Reward" (1897) — but apparently was unable to sell either work.
