    Bio: Ohio Governor, Presidential Candidate, Newspaper Publisher. Born in Jacksonburg, Ohio, he grew up on his family's farm in Butler County, Ohio. Completing an education at the common schools, he briefly became a schoolteacher before beginning a career in the newspaper business as a journalist. He became the owner and editor of the Dayton Daily News and the Springfield News. Successful as a journalist, he attempted to run for public office and was elected as a Democrat to represent Ohio's 3rd District in the United States House of Representatives. Cox served from 1909 until his resignation on January 12, 1913 to accept election as Ohio's 47th Governor. He served as Governor from 1913 to 1915 and was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1914. Elected again in 1917, he became Ohio's 49th Governor and served until 1920. As a Congressman he supported several Progressive Reforms and was able to enact many of the reforms as Governor during his first administration including workman's compensation and issues involving education, state elections, and prisons. During his second administration as Governor, his priorities were absorbed with the war effort in Europe during World War I. In 1920, he was the Democratic candidate in the Presidential Election with Franklin D. Roosevelt as his running mate. He lost the election to Warren G. Harding. Cox resumed his newspaper career and became the owner and publisher of the Miami News in Florida. Appointed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, he became vice chairman of the U.S. Delegation to the World Economic Conference at London in 1933. Cox later became the owner and publisher of the Atlanta Journal in 1939. He declined an appointment from Ohio Governor Frank Lausche to the U.S. Senate in 1946. He became the owner of the Dayton Journal and Herald in 1949 and the owner and publisher of the Atlanta Constitution in 1950. He died at his residence in Kettering, near Dayton, Ohio, in 1957 when he was 87 years old. The James M. Cox Dayton International Airport is named for him.
