Cook (1869-1964) was born to Seth and Hannah Cook, Quakers who lived near Mt. Holly in Warren County. While working as a secretary, she enrolled in an evening medical school and graduated after four years. She eventually saved enough money to study one year at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at the University of Illinois. She graduated in 1908, and in the fall she returned to Waynesville, Ohio and opened her office, located in the Waynesville National Bank building on the northwest corner of Main and North streets. She practiced medicine in Waynesville for more than 52 years. In 1958, at the age of 88, Cook ranked as one of the oldest women practitioners in the United States. Cook was instrumental in the founding of the public library in Waynesville. In early 1917, she gathered together interested citizens and established a library association. The state granted a charter on Ohio May 1, 1917. In 1924 the Library Association Board assumed the responsibilities of a school district public library. Cook was appointed the first president of the board of trustees, a position she held until 1960. Information provided by the Mary L. Cook public library.
