MEDINA – Lee-Whedon Memorial Library director Catherine Cooper will give a presentation at 7 p.m. Feb. 24 on the life of Medina resident Dorothy Roberts Cox.

Several years ago, Cooper received a large notebook from Australian relatives of Cox, who discovered the notebook and felt it belonged in Cox’s home town.

Cox survived the 1918 flu epidemic and was in Wales in 1939 when World War II was declared. Cox was married to jeweler Harry Cox. She died in 1982.

Cooper is also the Ridgeway town historian. The public is invited to attend this program.
