|Mayor of Ottawa|
|Preceded by||James Davidson|
|Succeeded by||James A. Ellis|

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
He was born in Leeds, England, in 1858 and worked at the Montreal Star and the Toronto Mail (eventually merged with The Globe and Mail) before moving to Ottawa. Cook was also the Canadian correspondent for The Times, but was eventually dismissed because he was felt to be too partisan. He first served on city council in 1894.
He is buried in Beechwood Cemetery.
