Cook worked as a Government official in British North Borneo from 1911 until 1919. In December 1914 he was Assistant District Officer at Semporna, and it was at this time that he compiled a vocabulary of Bajau words. He later held District Officer posts. On returning to Britain, Cook wrote an autobiographical account of his time in ‘Borneo – The Stealer of Hearts’. It was considered one of the most authoritative books on Borneo.
