From About the Author in The Bar Is Open, Jim Cooper's 1995 book about the Tucson Press Club:
'Coop' moved to Tucson in 1951 to become the political reporter for the Tucson Citizen. After 13 years with that newspaper, he became managing editor of the weekly Southwestern Labor Review. He resigned that position when he enrolled at the University of Arizona to pursue a master's degree in English, and then served as assistant director of publications for Tucson Unified School District.
He passed away in 1992 and is especially remembered by friends for his sense of humor.
