Steve,

I believe the following SSDI entry is our Dr. Rexmond Canning Cochrane:
Rexmond Cochrane, b 05-Jul-1912, d Oct-1986; Last Res = Baltimore, Baltimore City, Maryland; SS # issued in New York.

Here's his Maryland Marriages Registration:
Rexmond Canning Cochrane (age 37) s/o Lawson S. Cochrane & Clara M. Nelson, was married on 25 Jun 1949 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland to Frances Marian Bennett (age 40) d/o Howard Douglas Bennett & Anne Tinker Bennett.

NOTES:
1)  I believe Clara married Robert P. Nelson some time between the April 1930 census and the May 1942 obituary for James Albert Canning.

2)  NOTE:  I Googled Rexmond Canning Cochrane and discoverd the following book:
The Chemical Warfare Service: From Laboratory to Field 
by Leo P. Brophy, Wyndham D. Miles, Rexmond Canning Cochrane 
The book discusses the US Army's interest in chemical warfare for WW II.  I wonder if this is our Rexmond Canning Cochrane?
