such as one of Emily Cook s wedding invitations and a pressed flower possibly a wild honeysuckle found in Elizabeth Cook s junior high school literature book Another item of interest is a scrapbook kept by Everett Cook It is comprised primarily of newsclippings concerning Joe Cook but also contains photographs and other items of memorabilia One of the most interesting items in the scrapbook is an essay entitled Joe Cook Educator written by Becky Hill in 1962 The series also contains correspondence newsclippings and magazine articles Correspondence in this series includes letters from missionaries who had been guests in Emily Cook Bickerstaff s home apparently this was a common practice in the Bickerstaff family The third series is an extensive collection of photographs depicting the Cook family from approximately the late 1800s through the 1980s including several photographs of Joe Cook spanning the years from his youth to shortly before his death Of particular interest are a photograph of Emily Cook preparing for the presentation of a bouquet of flowers to President William Howard Taft when he visited Columbus Mississippi on November 2 1909 this has been photocopied because the Cook family wished to retain the original and a 16 x 20 pastel of Everett Cook done by his wife Irene Griffin Cook in about 1961 The photographs are followed by a series of books which belonged to various members of the Cook family Among them are a Holy Bible presented to Joe Cook by his Bible class Christmas 1924 a New Indexed Bible which was Emily Cook Bickerstaff s study Bible from the time she was a bride in 1923 until the 1950s a copy of Training of State Teachers College Faculties signed by the author Dr Harris Malone Cook and presented to his parents The Influence of Court Decisions in Shaping School Policies in Mississippi with a personal inscription to Joe Cook from the author Jennings Burton George Red and Black by Grace S Richmond presented to Elizabeth Cook on her fifteenth birthday by her mother and a copy of The Diary of Joe Cook First President of Mississippi Southern College The latter is written in anecdotal form and provides insight into the character and personality of the man who called himself Teacher A large portion of the books in this series belonged to Everett Cook youngest son of Joe and Lizzie Cook Titles include The Human Comedy Vols I Iii 1983 Roget s Thesaurus of English Words 1879 David Copperfield 1910 and The Doctors 1909 The Doctors is especially notable because of its unique leather binding Rounding out the collection is a series of items of memorabilia Notable among these are a large aluminum canning pot a cone shaped aluminum strainer and stand and a small wooden pestle These items are said to have been used by the Tomato Club which was organized at Mississippi Normal College by Joe Cook in 1912 and existed on campus until approximately 1921 Other unique items are a 15 snare drum said to have belonged to Everett Cook when he was a member of the State Teachers College Band and a maroon and white Wedgwood plate engraved with a likeness of the University of Southern Mississippi Administration Building The series also includes medals baby shoes wall plaques and the piece de resistance the bunting hat and pins worn by Emily Cook when she presented flowers to President William Howard Taft This collection portrays the lives and times of a closely knit somewhat privileged family headed by a man of high moral principles his only vice of record is that he chewed tobacco incessantly who was dedicated to the cause of education It also illuminates the social and political cultures of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries One example is Emily Cook s high school memory book which provides a clear image of the pleasures and pastimes of a high school senior in 1919 Photograph Log Available Here Box and Folder List Box 1 Folder 1 Joe Cook Biographical Information 1914 Folder 2
