About the Donor
Thomas Yost ("Ty") Cooper (1884-1967), longtime city editor of the Hanover (Pennsylvania) Evening Sun, established this fund in 1965.
In addition to the fund, Cooper donated more than 1,600 books and other items to the Gettysburg College library in memory of his parents, Moses and Kate Miller Cooper. The collection includes many rare first editions of the classics, as well as an extensive collection of theatre programs and movie posters dating from the 1890s to 1959.
