Biography

Theodore Andrea Cook competed in the Olympics in the art competitions, and in 1906, captained the British fencing team in Athina, although he did not compete. He earned a silver medal in 1920 in the art competitions for his literature work on The Olympic Games of Antwerp. Cook was a British art criticer and writer. He studied at Radley College, where he captained the football and boating teams, and later at Wadham College, Oxford, where he rowed for Oxford in the 1889 Boat Race. He later founded the University Fencing Club at Oxford. Cook served on the IOC for six years, from 1909-15. He resigned in protest over Coubertin keeping German and Axis members on the IOC. Cook was the editor of The Field from 1910-28. He wrote several books on the Olympic Games, notably The Cruise of the Branwen, an account of the British team at the 1906 Olympics. He also served as editor of the 1908 Official Report.
