My late husbands grandparents have a F. mcCaleb that is entitled Steady. They were avid pointers owners and traveled hunting and this painting so reminds me of them. I am hanging on to it until my daughters will appreciate it. So nice to hear about the artist. Can you tell me approximately when he did this work? Steady.

I have a drawing called Winter Morning by F. McCaleb. Does anyone know anything about it. It looks like an original and it hung in a friends home from the 1950's and then I received it in the 70's. Thanks

So great to have the history Bob Boudreaux provided about Mr. McCaleb's employment and creative history with the Fitzgerald Agency. My siblings and I recently came across two McCaleb prints from our grandfather's estate, both depicting pointers in the field. Our grandfather was the founder of the Fitzgerald Agency and loved pointers and the hunting they made possible. No doubt he knew Mr. McCaleb and valued his artistry. Thanks for the helpful information.

Some history on Fred F. McCaleb
Bob Boudreaux (05/23/2013)
I worked with Fred not to long prior to his death at an advertising agency in New Orleans by the name of Fitzgerald Advertising. It was the largest Ad agency in the Southeast at the time. We had about 125 employees. Fred was an illustrator in the art department during that time. He was a lover of the outdoors. He did many paintings of dogs and one of the nicest paintings were of 2 game cocks. He had them printed in a limited edition and I was lucky enough to get a set. I still have mine framed and in my house after about 43 years. He was a nice,simple old outdoorsman and I was a young 19 y.o. kid working as a messenger/mail boy at the time. He was quite a gentleman.

Artist, Fred McCaleb

Since we are a small sept of the Campbell of Argyll clan, every McCaleb in the U.S. is supposedly related to all others of the name, however tenuously. One of my older relatives and a Pulp Western collector friend each informed me that Fred was a very successful cover artist for both Field and Stream and the highly popular Western story pulps of the thirties, forties and fifties. Perhaps that is where inquiries should start about this excellent craftsman.

Fred McCaleb Sketches
Tina Wilson (02/09/2010)
I have 4 framed Fred McCaleb sketches found at a garage sale. I haven't found much information on him researching the internet. I do know he was a very talented artist from Louisiana. I'm proud to own them and am eager to learn more about him. They are titled as follows: "Watch The Singles", First Find, Ranging Out & "Fetch Here". Two of the titles on the sketches are quotation marks and the other two are not as shown. I would appreciate any information on the sketches or his biography.

Peter and Diane Clarke (10/12/2009)
In my files, I realized I had a little more information on Fred McCaleb. Fred died in the 1960s, was from New Orleans, and had a camp on Lake Catherine, LA. His father was an artist. I will try and contact a relative by e-mail If I get more information, I will add yet another message.

Oil Panting by McCaleb
Peter Clarke (10/12/2009)
You will see under McCaleb on Askart the oil that sold @ auction. We have that oil in our Gallery. It is truly a detailed and vibrant oil painting. We did meet a relative of McCaleb, but they had very little information on his art. This oil does not have a date but is signed lower left.
