In 1979 after a decade as an arts educator and production manager, director, and playwright on Broadway, off-Broadway, and in major regional theaters, Bob took an hiatus from the professional theater to begin working with Joseph Campbell, who subsequently named him editorial director of his Historical Atlas of World Mythology.

In 1982, Bob, Campbell and Alfred van der Marck founded Van der Marck Editions, to develop and publish, not only Campbell’s Atlas, but also “works that contribute to an understanding of our cultural heritage, the complex world in which we live, and the uncertain future that we face.”

When Campbell died in 1987, Bob, his literary executor, completed unfinished portions of the Atlas and supervised the posthumous publication of Volume I (two books) and Volume II (three books). In 1990, Bob and Jean Erdman, Campbell’s widow, created the Joseph Campbell Foundation (JCF) “to preserve, protect, and perpetuate Campbell’s pioneering work,” and Bob was named JCF’s executive director. Appointed JCF president in 1998, Bob continues to serve as executive editor of the Collected Works of Joseph Campbell, supervising the print, audio, and video publication of Campbell’s oeuvre.

A founding Trustee of United Religions Initiative (URI) who formerly served as its Treasurer and a member of its Global Council, Bob is on the Advisory Board of Spring: a Journal of Archtype and Culture and the Board of Mentors of Immanence: The Journal of Applied Mythology, Legend, and Folklore.
