Governor Martin L. Davey with a group of men photograph
Description: Governor Martin L. Davey (front row right, wearing top hat) and a group of men, ca. 1935. Davey was Ohio's governor from 1935 to 1939. Despite being a Democrat, Davey opposed many of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal programs and engaged in a public feud with federal relief administrator Harry Hopkins. Although the governor was cleared of all charges, the stigma cost him politically. He lost his bid for re-election in 1938. View on Ohio Memory.
