      Significance: The Williams Residence is significant according to criteria b and c: for its associations with original owner, businessman Charles K. Williams (1869-1917); for its architectural style and designer, A. E. Doyle. Charles Kennard Williams was a Portland investment banker who worked for the national banking firm of Morris Brothers. He was bom in Westbranch, Ohio, and came to Portland at the turn of the century. Williams was involved with various financiers before becoming manager of Morris Brothers. His other activities included promotions for the Giles Lake project, Laurelhurst, and the Lewis & Clark Exposition. Williams married Florence Hayes in 1905. [Charles K.
