Biographical/Historical Note

E. Burton Cooke, landscape architect, practiced in Atlanta, Georgia, from the mid-1910s to the mid-1930s. Prior to moving to Atlanta, Cooke worked for the landscape department of The Biltmore, the George Vanderbilt estate in Asheville, North Carolina. In 1912, Cooke began a co-partnership of the Atlanta firm, Cooke & Swope, with fellow landscape architect Harold Brown Swope. Cooke helped design the Forest Avenue Historic District in Elberton, Georgia, where he was noted for using curvilinear streets that wound in harmony through natural surroundings. In addition to residential projects, Cooke also assisted the Decatur Trade Board with city planning and was frequently consulted on City of Atlanta projects involving gardens and monuments.
