The Thomas Cooper Library Science and Mathematics Endowment was established by Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Dr. John M. Herr, Jr. and his wife, Lucrecia, to assist in offsetting the increasing costs of journals for the Thomas Cooper Library in the fields of science and mathematics. Recognizing the heavy burden placed on library acquisitions funds by increasingly expensive science and mathematics journals, the Herrs wish to assist in providing needed journals for future generations of students.

Professor Herr has been a strong supporter of the libraries since beginning his career at USC in 1959. He also served as president of the library's support group, the Thomas Cooper Society in 1998-99.
