The book of Oz Cooper
by Goudy, Dwiggins, DaBoll, et al.
Chicago: Society of typographic arts, 1949.
Oswald Bruce Cooper, 1879-1940
by R. Hunter Middleton
New York : 1699
12 page keepsake for a lecture at Gallery 303 on 2 March 1966.
Also, I don't know where you live, but the Newberry Library in Chicago has 8
boxes (1398 items) of papers pertaining to Oz Cooper: correspondences,
artwork, type drawings, etc.
And then you can check the biographical listings in:
Rookledge's international handbook of type designers
Typographical milestones (Allan Haley, limited application)
Typography: when, who, how
As for online resources, there's this:
but I have no idea what it's all about. I think it's one of those "graphic
design lifestyle" websites.
