"Francis Howard Williams (1844-1922) was a Philadelphia literary critic and author whose works were featured in publications such as The
Atlantic Monthly, Harper’s Weekly, Lippincott’s Magazine, and The Independent. He was the known friend of several literary greats including
Walt Whitman, Louisa May Alcott, and George W. Cable and was part of a large circle of contemporary poets, writers, editors, and publishers of the time period. The collection includes letters to Williams, writings, and ephemera."

In the Philadelphia blue book published in 1898, "Inglenook" was listed as Howard's summer residence.

Francis Howard Williams' residence still stands at its original site today, and the exterior still looks almost the same as before, despite some difference at the front porch area.
