William Franklin Cox, Jr. (August 5, 1895 in Anderson, South Carolina – 1950) was an executive officer of the Virginia Glee Club during the Glee Club 1917-1918 season, which was truncated by the United States' entry into World War I. After receiving his BA from Furman University, he studied law at the University of Virginia, an education that was interrupted by the War. Cox returned to the University to finish his law degree. While at the University, he was a member of Pi Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Rho, the Washington Literary Society, the Law Review Board, and the newly formed Jim McConnell Post 44 of the American Legion; he also sang in the Glee Club during the 1919-1920 and 1920-1921 seasons.
