Description
The Bill Mochon 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).
Background
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.
