Samuel Williams Cooper

Cooper was born March 5, 1860 in Philadelphia’s Germantown section, to one of the city’s colonial families. He was fifth of the eight children of Colin Campbell Cooper, MD, and Emily Williams Cooper. He was educated by his parents and private tutors until he entered the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where he graduated in 1881. He specialized in business and commercial law, and was a member of the American Anti-Imperialist League. In 1893 he married the opera singer Homie Weldon, who bore a daughter, Margaret, in 1895. After a distinguished career in law and active leadership in the city’s Lawyers Club, The Arts Club, Nameless Club, Plays and Players, and Art Alliance, Cooper died on January 13, 1939 of bronchial pneumonia, leaving behind one daughter, Margaret Homie Cooper.
