We are trying to verify whereabouts of G. Bradford Cook, who looks amazingly like a younger version of Bradford E. Cook, chair of the Ballot Law commission in NH.

Tracy to me
Trying to find info on George Bradford Cook, also know as G. Bradford Cook of Chicago. Cook was born in 1936 in Nebraska and is the son of George Brash Cook, the owner of a large insurance company in Nebraska. G. Bradford Cook, was educated at Stanford University and the University of Nebraska Law School.
In March of 1972, Nixon appointed him as Chair of the SEC, 10 weeks later he resigned under fire, following disclosure that he had modified a commission complaint to delete references to a secret $200,000 campaign contribution to President Nixon’s re-election campaign, from fugitive financier Robert Vesco; admitted that he testified falsely to a Senate committee and to a grand jury investigating the matter; his license to practice law in Illinois and Nebraska was suspended for three years.
No one can seem to find anything on G. Bradford Cook, since his shameful resignation and he is now listed at the “politicalgraveyard.com”. He was still living as of 1975.
Can anyone find ANY info on or find where G. Bradford Cook is today and what he’s doing? We think he was married to a Rita Cook, after finding this article and about a contribution the two gave, to the University of Nebraska: http://law.unl.edu/sites/unl.edu.college-of-law.law/files/alumni/transcript/docs/2011%20Spring/68_Report%20on%20Giving.pdf
