A name now far removed from its original descriptive term for someone engaged in the making and repairing of barrels and casks, ‘Cooper’ figures prominently in the historical record.

Many gained high honours and distinction through their services to the state, while others have achieved fame through a rich variety of endeavours and pursuits ranging from the stage and music to sport and the sciences.

Read here the colourful tale of the Coopers, both past and present.

Cooper Family Name Mini-Book Excerpt

"Bearers of the Cooper name have stamped a mark on the historical record through their pioneering work in the sciences.

Born in New York City in 1930, Leon N. Cooper is the American physicist who, along with John Bardeen and John Robert Schrieffer, shared the Nobel Prize for physics in 1972 for their work on a special theory of superconductivity.

A Fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the character of Sheldon Cooper in the popular television comedy series The Big Bang Theory is named in part after him."
