Rev. Blaine Cook - - 1918 - 2000
Rev. Blaine Cook, 82, Minot native and the first administrator of Bishop Ryan High School, died Tuesday, December 26, 2000, in a Bismarck nursing home. He touched the lives of thousands through his work in education, in athletics and as a problem solver.
He was born Nov. 7, 1918, in Minot, a son of Harry and Beatrice (Moulton) Cook. Raised in Minot, he grew up in St. Leo's Catholic Parish where he was nurtured in the mold and toughness of Rev. J. W. Hogan, who was just hitting his stride at St. Leo's during the 1930s, the years of Father Cook's youth, the years that produced priests and athletes and winners who set records that remain unbroken.
After graduating from St. Leo's High School in 1936, he enrolled at St. John's University in Collegeville, MN, where he earned a bachelor's degree and completed his studies for the priesthood. He was ordained at St. Leo's Church in 1944, and after assisting for a brief period in his home parish, was assigned to St. Mary's Parish in Bismarck. He remained there until 1955 as assistant pastor, pastor and high school basketball coach. His team won the North Dakota State Class A title in 1951.
He was pastor of St. Joseph's Catholic Parish in Williston from 1955 to 1957, and after a year as chaplain at St. Joseph's Hospital in Minot, was named superintendent of the newly opened Bishop Ryan High School in Minot, a post he held from 1958 to 1970. He was pastor of Corpus Christi Catholic Parish in Bismarck from 1970 to 1977, and for the next ten years, served as director of religious life and education at the University of Mary in Bismarck. At the same time, he was formation director for the diaconate program in the Bismarck Diocese.
He served as chaplain at the Minot State University Newman Center in the early 1970s and at Minot Air Force Base from 1965 to 1970. He was a member and onetime chairman of the Minot Recreation Commission from 1967 to 1971.
He returned to Ryan for a two-year period as priest-in-residence from 1987 to 1989. He then retired and resided on the UM Campus until 1997, when he moved to Emmaus Place in Bismarck, a residence for retired priests. After his health failed in 2000, he moved to St. Vincent's Home in Bismarck.
His priesthood was the driving force of his life and education its constant companion. He earned a Master's degree at Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI, and did additional graduate work at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks. When he left Ryan in 1970, he was hailed as "an uncommon man ... the right man in the right place at the right time," who had borne well the tough burden of financial and administrative problems of operating a Catholic school in the years of change in the Roman Catholic Church following the second vatican council in the 1960s.
He developed a reputation for having exceptional skills in the art of communicating with people: young people in their struggles to learn and grow, teachers in conflict with a school board during the 1969 teacher's strike in the Minot Public Schools, and with physicians in a dispute with the administration at St. Joseph's Hospital in Minot in 1982. He was a member of the State Fact Finding Commission for Professional Negotiations from 1969 to 1973, served on the Diocesean Personnel Board in 1969-1970 and on the Governor's Council on Youth Opportunity from 1970 to 1973. Beginning in 1972, he was a member of the UM Board of Regents.
Several civic celebrations were held in his honor over the years, and in 1984, he received the C.P. Lura Award for distinguished service in education. The award is named for the man who was MSU president from 1954 to 1967.
Remarks made by Cook when he was at Ryan during a period of educational and financial upheaval seem prescient in today's atmosphere of chaos in education. He spoke then of steering clear of too many trendy new things in education, opting instead to remain focused on educational basics and on the positive values of ethics, religion and discipline as he saw them.
"In a private school, we have the ability to present a two-world view," he said, "that of God and that of the secular."
In another interview, he observed that "In modern times, we have been emphasizing 'experiencing' religion, but we have to return to some very basic content in our teaching ... I am conscious of some good things of the past and some that weren't so good ... (But) we must live in the present, we must cope, adapt and grow and not be afraid of the present."
He is survived by a brother, Robert Cook of Minot and his wife Veronica, and a number of nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother Patrick.
His funeral will be Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in St. Leo's Catholic Church, Minot, with private burial at Rosehill Memorial Park, Minot.
Visitation has been scheduled for Friday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. at Thompson-Larson Funeral Home in Minot. There also will be visitation at the church beginning at 9 a.m. prior to the funeral.
A vigil prayer service has been scheduled for Thursday, today, at 7:30 p.m. in the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit in Bismarck. Visitation starts there at 4:30 p.m.
Memorials are preferred to the Bishop Ryan High School Foundation in Minot, Mary University or St. Mary's High School, both Bismarck.
