: James Middleton Cox (1870-1957) was born near Jacksonburg, Butler County, Ohio. He left school at the age of 16 and later taught at a school near Middletown. In the following years Cox became interested in the newspaper business and purchased what would become the Dayton Daily News in 1898.
As Cox's newspaper business grew, so did his interest in local politics. He earned a seat in the United States House of Representatives serving the 3rd district from 1909 to 1913. Cox was also elected governor of Ohio in 1913 and served until 1915. He was elected a second time in 1917 and served until 1921. View on Ohio Memory.
