Does anyone have any information on G. Bradford Cook? There is virtually nothing on the web about this character.

In 1971 Richard Nixon appointed Cook as general counsel of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). On 3rd March, 1972, Cook replaced William J. Casey as chairman of the SEC. He was the youngest man ever to head a federal regulatory agency.

Cook resigned only ten weeks after he took office when it was disclosed that he had altered an SEC complaint against financier Robert Vesco after discussions with Maurice Stans, the President's chief campaign fund-raiser.

You can read about the Vesco case here:

John,

A bit of trivia. In the early to mid 1960's, Cook was a frequent visitor to Dallas as a guest of James Clark. Clark was the VP of Investments Management Corp. This was the Management Division of all the Murchison interests in Dallas.
