A Tale of Two Men

The story behind the The Cook Hotel and Conference Center at LSU evolved over nearly 10 years of friendship between LSU Alumni Association President Dr. Charlie Roberts and then-ARCO Industries CEO, Mr. Lod Cook. The two met in 1984 when LSU alumni traveled to Los Angeles to support the Tigers in their highly anticipated football matchup with USC. Cook, who earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from LSU in 1950 and 1955 respectively, was a longtime LSU benefactor. He invited the group to dinner at the company’s headquarters – and a friendship was born. continued
