He worked at a music store as a youth and first met the girl he would later marry, Katie Warren Johnston, there. He belonged to several bands and orchestras in Gonzales. The young ladies were often serenaded by Arthur and a group of his friends.
      Arthur went to several business schools in San Antonio and returned to Gonzales to operate a theater very successfully with his brother-in-law Buddy Johnston for a while. He managed the Sunset Brick and Tile Company for a time before moving to San Antonio. He married Katie Warren Johnston May 18, 1910.
