What would you fill in this blank? who or whom?

______ was the state's prison-reform movement initiated by?

If one were to answer that question, it'd be as: the state's prison-reform movement was initiated by xxx -- since xxx is the object of preposition, I'd think we should use whom to replace it. To my confusion, however, a popular grammar book says it's who. So awaiting your answers please!!!
