John Henry Ingram (1849-1916) was a somewhat eccentric Englishman who spent most of his life defending Edgar Allan Poe from personal and critical attacks. He corresponded with people who had known Poe, many of whom sent Mr. Ingram copies of Poe's letters and other memorabilia. Mr. Ingram's extensive collection, which includes magazine and newspaper articles, photographs, letters, documents, and other manuscripts, was purchased by the University of Virginia and is reproduced here.
