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.
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.
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. Laut would get defeated running for a third term in office in the 1935 Alberta general election by Social Credit candidate William King.
After his defeat, McCool retired from public service. He would die on June 22, 1988.
