Harry L. Davis portrait
Description: Photograph of Harry L. Davis (1878-1950) of Cleveland, Ohio, ca. 1924. He served as governor of Ohio from 1921 to 1923. Davis's main contribution to Ohio during his term 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 and dramatically cutting thirty-seven agencies, boards, commissions, and offices.
