Governor Harry L. Davis portrait
Description: Portrait of Harry L. Davis (1878-1950) of Cleveland, Ohio, ca. 1924. He served as governor of Ohio from 1921 to 1923. As governor, Davis's main contribution to Ohio was the Administrative Reorganization Code of 1921. Following World War I, many Americans, including numerous Ohioans, sought a more efficient and smaller government at the state and federal levels. The Administrative Reorganization Code addressed these concerns, by reordering the state government. View on Ohio Memory.
