Welcome to the Captain Cook Society
We have an international membership from countries such as Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Sweden, United Kingdom and the United States. In all, we have about 500 members and they receive a free quarterly publication called Cook's Log. Each issue contains articles on many aspects of James Cook's Life and those associated with him.
Membership is open to anyone interested in Captain James Cook, whether professionally or as a hobby. Your interests might be in animals, astronomy, birds, books, botany, coins, discovery, engravings, ethnography, exploration, family history, journals, magazines, medals, navigation, ships, stamps, wills, or zoology. You'll find that Cook's Log covers all these subjects and more!
The Society was formed in 1975 as the Captain Cook Study Unit and changed its name to the Captain Cook Society in 2001. The first officers lived in the USA and Australia. Currently, one officer lives in New Zealand, and the other three live in the UK. There is also an Australian branch with additional officers and an additional journal called Endeavour Lines. Members in Canada, Germany and New Zealand also hold meetings from time to time.
