The Cochran family papers primarily document the lives of Aso-Neith Cochran and her daughter, Vota Cochran. Aso-Neith was an occultist whose teachings and readings centered on musical vibrations, color, and numbers; she was also an early adherent of the Bahá'í faith. Vota was a childhood musical prodigy who traveled frequently with her mother. The papers include correspondence, photographs, diaries, and Aso-Neith's occultist writings.
