From Ohio History Central
Photograph of Myers Y. Cooper (1873-1958), a Cincinnati businessman who served as governor of Ohio from 1929 to 1931. During Cooper's administration, the state began new soil conservation programs, passed laws to safeguard investors' funds, and reduced personal and real property taxes. The Martha Kinney Cooper Ohioana Library was also created during his term. Intending to create a library to solely house the works of Ohioans, Cooper's wife solicited donations of books from authors who were from the state of Ohio. Initially, Ohio's First Lady housed the collection in the solarium of the Governor's Mansion. In 1935, the library moved to the State Library in Columbus.
