Robert Cochran (1943- ) is a University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, professor of English and folklore specialist. He met Vance Randolph in 1976 and eventually published two books about the famous Ozark folklorist: For Love and For Money: The Writings of Vance Randolph (1979) and Vance Randolph, an Ozark Life (1983). Cochran visited with Randolph frequently during the final years of Randolph's life and from him received much of the materials in this research collection. As a result, the collection contains materials written and received by both Vance Randolph and Robert Cochran.
