This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An east coast marine and landscape painter, especially of beach scenes, Peter Cook earned a degree in architecture from Princeton University and studied painting with John Folinsbee in New Hope, Pennsylvania, and at the National Academy of Design in New York City. He married Joan Follinsbee, daughter of John Follinsbee.

Cook was the recipient of the Pulitzer Traveling Scholarship, and his paintings are in the collections of Harvard and Princeton Universities, the Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution, and the United States Navy.

Biography from The National Art Museum of Sport, Inc.:
Friends of Princeton's outstanding track star of the 1930s, William Bonthron, commissioned fellow Princeton alumnus, Peter Cook (1915-1992), to commemorate Bonthon's win over the era's track super hero, Glenn Cunningham of the University of Kansas. Cook painted two in 1983 - one is in Princeton's Jadwin Gymnasium, one in the National Art Museum of Sport.

Cook graduated from Princeton University in 1937 with a degree in architecture and a record as an excellent hockey player. In the 1950s and '60s, he coached Princeton 's freshman hockey teams which included his three sons. He continued to play hockey into his 70s.

He began the study of painting in 1936 and in 1939 won a Pulitzer Traveling Scholarship and studied at the Academy of Design and Art Students League in New York. Cook combined running a family farm with painting until in 1946 when he started to receive enough portrait commissions that painting began to subsidize his farming.

Many of the commissions he received during his long career were from universities as well as corporations and the U.S. Supreme Court. He also painted landscapes in Maine and Europe as well as near his New Jersey home.
