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.
