He was graduated at Harvard in 1849, and, after studying architecture, was employed for many )(ears as a teacher. In 1863 Mr. Cook wrote a series of articles on American art for the New York "Tribune," and continued such contributions until 1869, when he went as the "Tribune correspondent to Paris. He resigned that place at the beginning of the Franco-Prussian war, and subsequently passed some time in Italy. On his return to New York he renewed his former connection with the " Tribune." Mr. Cook has published "The Central Park" (New York, 1868); the text to accompany a reproduction, by heliotype, of Durer's " Life of the Virgin" (Boston, 1874); "The House Beautiful" (New York, 1878); and edited, with notes, a translation of the 7th German edition of Wilhelm Lubke's "History of Art" (2 vols., 1878).
