Kenneth Powers Williams (August 25, 1887 in Urbana, Ohio – September 25, 1958) was a professor of mathematics at Indiana University, where he was also a commander of the ROTC there.

He is best known for his five volume book, Lincoln Finds a General, published from 1949~1957. Williams had intended to write seven books, however his illness and death, just before Volume 5 was published, prevented that. Volume 1 was reprinted by Indiana Univ. Press, Volumes 3 and 4 were reprinted by University of Kansas Press as "Grant Rises in the West".

Williams married Mrs. Ellen (Laughlin) Scott on August 20, 1920.

Williams died on September 25, 1958.
