Edward Bruce Williamson was a noted entomologist and botanist in the early part of the 20th century.

He also owned and maintained the Longfield Iris Farm in Bluffton, Indiana where he propagated award-winning irises. The collection includes correspondence, drawing, field notes and reports from his collecting trips, and photographs.
