The condolences of everyone at Acadiensis go out to the family, friends and colleagues of Ramsay Cook, who passed away on 14 July 2016. Along with the 26 books that he wrote or edited, and the 60 plus articles he authored, Cook was also committed to bringing history to the public through the visual realm. To this end, in 1972 he made a film, The Craft of History, in which a young Cook interviewed three senior historians, Donald Creighton, Arthur Lower, and Michel Brunet, on their work. While we don’t have a digital version of that work, the CBC Archives does hold footage of Cook being interviewed by Vincent Tovell on 28 May 1972 for the television program Distinguished Canadians.
