Biography:Alvin Victor Donahey (also known as A. Victor Donahey, A. Vic Donahey, Vic Donahey, A. V. Donahey, or Honest Vic Donahey) (July 7, 1873 - April 8, 1946) was a Democratic Party politician from Ohio. Donahey was the 50th Governor of Ohio and a United States Senator from Ohio.

Born in Cadwallader, Tuscarawas County, Ohio, Donahey served as County Auditor from 1905 to 1909. After serving as a delegate to the 1912 Constitutional Convention, Donahey served as State Auditor from 1913 - 1921. He did not seek re-election in 1920, running instead for Governor. Donahey lost that election but won the position two years later, serving three terms from 1923 to 1929. He did not run for re-election in 1928. He won election to the United States Senate in 1934, and served one term in the Senate from 1935 until 1941, before retiring.
