The Canadian War Museum congratulates historian Dr. Tim Cook upon his election to the Royal Society of Canada as one of 93 new Fellows.
Prospective members are elected by their peers for their outstanding scholarly, scientific and artistic achievements. Dr. Cook has been elected as a RSC Fellow by his peers in the Humanities Division of the Academy of Arts and Humanities. The Royal Society of Canada cited Cook’s scholarship and exhibitions on Canada and the First and Second World Wars, as well as media appearances which have resulted in wide dissemination of history to the general public.
“Recognition by the Royal Society of Canada is the highest honour an individual can achieve in the arts and humanities, social sciences, and science,” said Mark O’Neill, President and CEO of the Canadian War Museum and the Canadian Museum of History. “This is a wonderful acknowledgement of Tim Cook’s scholarship within the field of military history, and of the work he does for the War Museum.”
The Royal Society of Canada exists to promote Canadian research and scholarly accomplishment in both of Canada’s official languages, to mentor young scholars and artists, to recognize academic and artistic excellence, and to advise governments, non-governmental organizations, and Canadians generally on matters of public interest.
