As a student at the University of Wyoming, Bob Mitchell was instrumental in creating a course of study for those interested in radio careers and acted in campus productions. If that wasn't enough he also produced, directed and co-wrote two ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) award winning musicals.

During WWII, he served in the Army 7th Division as a Lt. stationed on Attu. Wounded during his service there, he began writing the stories of other wounded servicemen while recuperating from his own wound. Those stories prompted the Army to name him the General's Aide in charge of Media. He retained that title for the remainder of the war.

After his discharge, he made his way to Hollywood where he joined up with his college buddy, Gene Levitt. The two men collaborated to write for various radio programs. They wrote over 200 scripts for Phillip Marlowe alone. When television came into being, Bob and Gene moved their families to New York City where they wrote for the legendary Steve Allen. Upon returning to Los Angeles, Bob wrote for classic shows like Highway Patrol and Perry Mason as well as major performers like Dinah Shore. During his years with Perry Mason, Bob joined forces with his wife, Esther. The husband and wife collaboration lasted over 20 years.
