Abstract:

The papers consist primarily of correspondence, meeting minutes and reports, clippings, and printed materials received by Williams as secretary of the Minnesota commission for the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition in 1876; and articles and notes on Minnesota history.

The Centennial Exhibition materials relate to the construction of the Minnesota building, gathering of exhibits, financing, and related matters. The historical files include notes on Ramsey County that were not used in Williams' History of the City of Saint Paul and the County of Ramsey (St. Paul, 1876); a collection of biographical sketches, memoirs, and other data on well-known Minnesotans, written or compiled by Williams; an autobiographical statement by Vital Guerin; and an incomplete history of Minnesota Territory.

A few family letters tell of Williams' youth in Ohio and his move to St. Paul (1850s). There are a few speeches to local Independent Order of Odd Fellows lodges (1869); a diary for the first three months of 1894; an index to material on Minnesota persons and events; and 3 architectural drawings of Williams' house in St. Paul.
