Robert Milton McCool (August 30, 1893 – June 22, 1988) was a provincial level politician from Alberta, Canada. He served as a member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta for the electoral district of Cochrane from 1926 to 1935.[1]

Political career[edit]

McCool ran a seat in the Alberta Legislature in 1926 Alberta general election. He won a hotly contested three-way race that saw him elected on the second count in the Cochrane electoral district to hold the seat for the governing United Farmers of Alberta.[2]

The following election in 1926 McCool would run against Liberal candidate William Laut for the second time in a straight fight for the district. He would be re-elected by a margin of 12 votes.[3] Laut would get defeated running for a third term in office in the 1935 Alberta general election by Social Credit candidate William King.[4]

After his defeat, McCool retired from public service. He would die on June 22, 1988.[5]
