Art and Dorothy Cooke Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship was established in memory of Art and Dorothy Cooke by their daughters, Janet Jerico and Susan MrKich. Art and Dorothy both attended Dalhousie University in the 1930s, taking degrees in English. They then lived near Dalhousie most of their lives, their children attended Dalhousie and Dorothy became University Librarian. They continued close contact with Dalhousie and were always concerned with education and environmental issues. Study and research in this field would have interested them deeply.
