Governor Myron T. Herrick portrait
Description: Myron Herrick (1854-1929) was governor of Ohio from 1904 to 1906. In 1903, Herrick successfully ran for governor against Tom L. Johnson, an influential Progressive reformer. Herrick won the election by more than 113,000 votes. His electoral success did not mean that his term as governor went smoothly. The Republican Party in Ohio was divided into a number of factions at this time, and it was impossible for Herrick to please all of them. The governor devoted significant attention to the state's fiscal resources, but these efforts were not enough to gain his reelection. View on Ohio Memory.
