Madison Cooper – The Man and His Legacy Pt 1

Madison Cooper is a legendary figure in Waco. He put the city in the national spotlight in 1952 when his novel Sironia landed on the New York Times’ Best Seller List and was known about town as an eccentric bachelor. But Cooper’s greatest contribution to Waco was his philanthropic spirit, establishing the Cooper Foundation in 1943 for the purpose of bettering Waco.
