The armies in Ionia county con-

ward Jood narrowly escaped being

generous gifts which were present-
ed to the Board of Regents by Mr.
Cook. Aside from the donations. for
buildings, the deceased included a
$200,000 fund as a basis for securing
prominent men in the law profes-
slon as speakers during the winter
months in Ann Arbor. Chief Jus-
tice Charles Evans Hughes was
scheduled to appear at Hill auditor-
ium last fall under this fund but
was unable to. keep the engage-
ment because of his elevation to
the supreme court. Further lec-
tures on American institutions are
being contemplated, however, for
the next scholastic year.
Mr. Cook's nationally known law
book on "Corporations" which has
gone into eight editions, was the
basis for another gift to the Uni-
versity in the form of royalties
from which are now being used to
secure expert opinions and stories
for the "Michigan Law Review."
William Wilson Cook was born
at Hillsdale, Mich., on April 16,
1858. He was the son of John Pot-
ter Cook and Martha Wolford Cook,
and was a descendent by the ninth
generation of 'Governor William
Bradford of the Massachusetts
colony in 1620. Cook was graduated
from the University in 1880 and
received his degree in law two
years later. In 1883 he Was admit-
ted to the bar in the state of New
York and practised as a corpora-
tion lawyer in New York City until
1921. He was a member of the Un-
ion and Lawyers' leagues in the
eastern city.
Wrote Several Books.
In addition to his teatise on
"Corporations" Mr. Cook was also
the author of "The Power and Re-
sponsibility of the American Bar,"
published in 1922, "Principles of
Corporation Law," published in
1924, and "American Institutions
and Their Preservation," issued in
Although he had been ill for sev-
eral years, Mr. Cook was not
thought to be in danger until sev-
eral days ago.
One of the most interesting side-
lights on the life of the deceased
was the fact that he never saw
either of his two building dona-.
tions on the campus, the Lawyers'
I club and Martha Cook dormitory.
According to Dr. Frank E. Robbins,
Assistant to the President, Mr.
Cook had not been a visitor in
Ann Arbor in several decades, al-
though he was constantly in com-
munication with the officials of
the University through his num-
erous donations.
