Edmund Francis Cooke
Birth: Apr. 13, 1885
Death: Mar. 13, 1967

US Congressman. Born in Prescott, Arizona, he moved with his parents to Alden, New York, in 1887. There he studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1910, practiced law in Alden and served as a member of the New York Assembly, (1923-28). In 1929, he was elected as a Republican to the Seventy-first and Seventy-second Congresses, serving until 1933. While in office, because of his contributions to the welfare of Native Americans, he was adopted a member of the New York Tuscarora Tribe. He was also the founder and General Manager and Counsel for Mutual Federation of Independent Cooperatives, an organization of dairy farmers in the Northeast United States that supplies milk and other dairy products to metropolitan New York. He practiced law until his death at age 82 in Alden, New York. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
