Freelance Historian
The World of Historical Manuscripts and Ephemera


Posted in   by Steven on August 31st, 2008

A voracious reader since the age of 3, Steven Cochran has turned a life-long love of history, a sharp mind and a memory full of historical facts into the vocation of a lifetime: contract researcher and lot writer of historical items for manuscript auction houses and collectors.

He lives in Brandon, Florida with his lovely and talented wife of 17 years (whom he does not deserve) and his “research assistant” Goldie the cat, whose primary joy is batting pens off Steven’s desk and running away with them.  Somewhere in the house is a treasure trove of nice pens, which as yet remains undiscovered.
