The Frank and Virginia Williams Collection of Lincolniana
The Frank and Virginia Williams Collection of Lincolniana documents the life and times of Abraham Lincoln. The Collection complements Civil War-related materials in the Ulysses S. Grant Presidential Library and Mississippi State University Libraries Special Collections. Its nineteenth-century political pamphlets and Lincoln family manuscripts are of particular interest to researchers.
The Williams Collection is accompanied by the Claude Simmons Collection, which contains clippings of twentieth-century newspaper, magazine, and journal articles that reference Lincoln.
The Collection also documents the life and collecting activities of retired Rhode Island Chief Justice and Lincoln scholar Frank Williams and his spouse, teacher and primitive art scholar Virginia Williams.
