There seem ample resources available for a monograph study of Nelson Cook. While we have not located a diary, he was a prolific letter writer, with letters by him or to him in the Library of Congress, Saratoga Springs, and Albany; his handwriting is flowing and wonderfully legible. It is likely there are additional "official" records, newspaper articles, etc., in the various cities in which he lived, and we have located well over 100 of his works and expect more to come.
We would be happy to share our information with any serious student, graduate or undergraduate, who wishes to prepare such a monograph as thesis or dissertation. The student must be enrolled in an accredited university program, with a demonstrable interest in art and/or art history and a recommendation from a university faculty member. Please contact us if you are interested.
