About Edward Cooper
Edward Cooper (October 26, 1824 – February 25, 1905) was the Mayor of New York City from 1879 to 1880, serving as a Democrat. He was the only son of industrialist Peter Cooper. Edward Cooper's business partner and brother-in-law, Abram S. Hewitt, also served as mayor of New York City (1887–1888). W.R. Grace's terms as mayor separated Cooper's and Hewitt's terms. W.R. Grace's terms were in turn separated by Franklin Edson's term.
