    Biography/History

    Fred Rochlin was born in 1923 and grew up outside Nogales, Arizona. After serving in the United States Army Air Corps during World War II, he earned a B.

After retiring from his architectural firm in 1986, to pursue artistic ventures, Rochlin wrote about his experiences serving in the Army Air Corps in World War II. His memoirs eventually became a stage performance and a book titled Old Man in a Baseball Cap. Rochlin died June 21, 2002 in Santa Monica, CA.
