Mr. George Shaw Cook , C.S.B., of Chicago, Illinois, has been appointed an Associated Editor of the Christian Science periodicals to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Mr. W. Stuart Booth, who recently became a Trustee of The Christian Science Publishing Society.

Mr. Cook is a native of Iowa, and in early boyhood removed with his parents to Chicago, where he was educated in the Chicago public schools. He went from school into the business world, and later became identified with financial interests in Chicago and in New York.

In 1895 Mr. Cook became a student of Christian Science, and in 1904 he gave up his commercial pursuits to devote his life to the practice of Christian Science, in which he has been engaged continuously. He was a member of the Normal Class of the Board of Education of The Mother Church in 1910 and became an authorized teacher of Christian Science. For some years Mr. Cook was Committee on Publication for Illionis, and in 1914 became a member of The Christian Science Board of Lectureship, on which he served until 1925, lecturing in this country and other countries. Mr. Cook served his branch church, Fifth Church of Christ, Scientist, of Chicago, as First Reader, and in 1929 became First Reader of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, for the regular three-year term. After he had returned to Chicago, he was again called to Boston to teach the Normal Class of the Board of Education in 1934.
