Edith Virginia Cox Cooper, born 1909, inherited the personal and business papers of her father, Charles Claiborne Cox, who founded the town of Splendora, Texas. In turn, Edith left the papers to her daughter, Nina Ruth Cooper, who recognized their importance as a piece of early Texas history, providing insight into the settlement of early Texas. With the help of her niece (Edith’s granddaughter), Connie Cooper Henderson, Nina arranged for their preservation.
