<p> Artist, Arthur McCall, a native of South Texas is a long-time resident of Pleasanton, Texas and can trace his roots to Atascosa County back a while. His great-grandmother and grandmother are buried in Pleasanton and other relatives were here as far back as the 1880s. Arthur McCall has had an interest in drawing and painting as far back as he can remember, a childhood hobby that has grown into a professional career. He would call himself a self-taught artist even though commercial art studies were an early part of his beginning in art. This schooling, however brief, was interrupted by military service and eventually being assigned to the U.S. Army First Infantry Division and a tour to Vietnam back in the 1960s, ended the art schooling. Some years later McCall was selected to attend the Texas Game Warden Academy at Texas University and was commissioned as a Texas Game Warden in 1969. He was assigned to Atascosa County in 1971 and served the area as Game Warden until 2012 when he retired after 43 years of service.</p>
