The Warren A. Cook Distinguished Service Award was created in honor of, and is now presented in memory of, Mr. Warren A. Cook. Warren Cook was a pioneer in the industrial hygiene profession and had a long and distinguished career. He was the second president of the American Industrial Hygiene Association in 1940. He was President of at least two Local AIHA Sections — Michigan in the 1950s and the Carolinas Section in the 1970s. He remained involved in the Section and the profession into the late 1980s. Obviously Warren Cook did not sit on his laurels.

Warren Cook was the recipient of numerous awards over his career and his name is often listed among a "who's who" of Industrial Hygiene names — names like Hamilton and Yant and Cummings and Patty. Warren Cook has been honored by the naming of several awards after him, including the Carolinas AIHA Warren A. Cook Distinguished Service Award. Mr. Cook was the first recipient of the Carolinas award in 1987.

The award is presented to the Carolinas AIHA Section member that demonstrates distinguished service to the profession of industrial hygiene throughout their career. If you know of a member that you would like to nominate for this award, please provide the information to any one of the board members.
