Samuel Bowles (1826-1878) was the editor of the Springfield Republican , the local newspaper in Springfield, Massachusetts that was founded by his father, Samuel Bowles (1797-1851) in 1824, and later run by his son, Samuel Bowles (1851-1915). Upon the death of his father in 1851, Bowles took control of the paper at age 25 and he soon made it one of the most influential newspapers in the United States.

William Austin Dickinson, known as Austin (1829-1895), was the older brother of American poet Emily Dickinson. He was a prominent attorney in Amherst, Massachusetts, town meeting moderator, and treasurer of Amherst College.

Susan Huntington Gilbert Dickinson (1830-1913) was Austin's wife, and was a childhood friend and close confidante of Emily Dickinson.
