Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, Cook studied art at the Art Students League in New York. He became a nationally known painter, muralist, and master of all graphic media. He was commissioned by Forbes magazine to illustrate Willa Cather's, Death Comes for the Archbishop, and went to the Southwest for this purpose. Here, he met and married another fellow artist, Barbara Latham. After extensive travel they eventually made New Mexico their permanent home. Cook was granted two Guggenheim Fellowships to work in Mexico and the American South. During the WPA years he did two frescoes for the Courthouse Building in Springfield, Massachusetts. At the outbreak of World War II, he was appointed Artist War Correspondent with the rank of colonel, and recorded the activities of American forces in the South Pacific. Stationed in the Solomon Islands he completed prints, drawings, watercolors, and paintings on the war.
