Abstract:

The William C. Cochran family papers consist of correspondence, genealogical records, photographs, research files, and writings. Included here are a large number of letters of the extended Cochran family--though the bulk is to William C. Cochran. The correspondence provides a glimpse of the family and their private affairs in Ohio, as well as William C. Cochran's experiences growing up during the Civil War and as an adult. The papers also document Cochran's career as partrician historian. Much of his later life was spent compiling information from newspapers and other sources, resulting in two major unpublished biographes of Jacob D. Cox. The Cochran family papers also contain a small number of files related to Jacob D. Cox and Cochran's father, William Cochran. Of significance are ten letters written to Jacob D. Cox by William T. Sherman that discuss interpretations of the Civil War, and a notebook containing transcriptions of letters Cox sent to his wife during the Civil War. The William C. Cochran family papers are rich in detail about Oberlin College, the role of its alumnis in the Civil War, and about several great families connected to Oberlin.
