John S Cook

Class of 1962

Following graduation from WC I joined an Aerospace contractor in a technical programming role. After 2 years I entered Technical Sales selling information technology (computers) Into engineer and scientific markets. In 1965 we moved to Ohio and I sold systems to scientific users in Government and Manufacturing users in the Ohio, Eastern Mich., W.VA and Western Pa. We were located in that geography until returning to Md. in the mid 1970’s. Most of my accounts were still Government agencies including NASA, NOAA, DOI and DOD. I continued selling to these markets until my retirement in mid 2011. The final 1–2 years have been spent selling to the environmental science services in both Government and Academia.
