Biography of James Bond Johnson, Ph.D., Roswell Crash Photographer

James Bond Johnson, Ph.D. was incurably curious all his life. This led to his becoming for five years a reporter-photographer for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram then the South's largest newspaper -- and to pursuing university degrees in journalism, education, theology and psychology at Texas Wesleyan, Texas Christian, Southern Methodist and Claremont universities. He was a post doctorate fellow of the National Institute of Mental Health for three years of clinical psychiatry training in the post-graduate Department of Psychiatry, University of Southern California School of Medicine. He also received clinical training at the U. S. Public Health Service Hospital in Fort Worth, TCU-VA Veterans Guidance Center in Fort Worth, Metropolitan Hospital in Norwalk, Tri-City Mental Health Authority in Pomona, and Memorial Hospital Medical Center of Long Beach.

"Bond" as his friends call him, was an ordained United Methodist minister for 50 years and from 1960 was a California board certified and licensed clinical psychologist. He was in private practice as a clinical and consulting psychologist in Long Beach for 39 years with specialties in family therapy, sports and industrial psychology. In 1970, he founded the Long Beach Youth Home, a residential treatment facility and school for emotionally troubled youths, and in 1974 he established Cedar House in Long Beach, which has become a national model in the treatment of child and spousal abuse. He retired as senior pastor of the First United Methodist Church of San Pedro.

Bond pioneered in studying the etiology of post-traumatic stress disorder, having interviewed returned prisoners of war, escapees and evadees during three wars. He served as an Army Air Corps pilot cadet in World War II, a Marine Corps captain during the Korean conflict and an Army psychological operations specialist during the Vietnam War.


Bond was a consultant to the National Security Council at the White House. He served on the Eisenhower Commission which revised the Code of Conduct for prisoners of war and was a Pentagon consultant to "Operation Homecoming," the Department of Defense rehabilitation program for returning prisoners of war after the Vietnam War. He was on the consulting faculty of the US Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, KS. Prior to his retirement from the U. S. Army in the rank of full colonel after 33 years of active and reserve service he served as J-5 (civil military affairs)(Mob Des) for the United States European Command.

He served six terms as president of the Los Alamitos Area chapter of The Retired Officers Association and earlier served two terms as president of the Long Beach area chapter. He was a life member of the U. S. Marine Corps Combat Correspondents Association.

An inveterate traveler, he has organized and led group tours to six continents in recent years, specializing in "Sentimental Journeys" of former servicemen and women (and widows) to American battlefields around the world.

Bond received notoriety in later life as the "Roswell Photographer" responsible for photographing in 1947 the famous wreckage for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram the wreckage of the controversial "UFO crash" at Roswell, New Mexico. Bond was portrayed in this incident in the movie "Roswell," produced by ShowTime. Bond succumbed to cancer at the age of 78.
