China Marines Photograph Collection
reflects Mochon's interest in
photography and U.S. Marines history through a collection of twenty photographic prints
made from the original negatives collected by Mochon. The photographs primarily depict
U.S. Marines in the Legation Quarter area in Peking (Beijing).
Bill Mochon was a photographer and U.S. Marine. His early interest in photography was
put to work when he served as a U.S. Marine and was eventually assigned to work for the
base newspaper. Upon his return to civilian life, he moved to California in the early
1960s and began working as a commercial photographer. He worked for Vic Stein and
Associates from 1974-1981. He photographed Santa Anita, Del Mar, and Hollywood Park
races, the Los Angeles Rams, and the Dodgers.
