Biography from Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum:
Born at Newark, New Jersey, to Spanish immigrants Magdalena Berben Martin and Juan Caballero Gutierrez, Emilio Caballero (born 1917) came to the Texas Panhandle in 1937.  He studied at Amarillo Junior College, West Texas State College, and Columbia University, earning a doctorate from Columbia in 1955.

Caballero then served in World War II in both Europe and the Pacific, after which he taught art in Amarillo and Dumas.   He began teaching full time at West Texas State College in 1949, was appointed full professor and art department head in 1955, received the faculty excellence award in 1972, and resigned in 1979.  Moreover, he delivered workshops and demonstrations all over the Southwest.

Caballero exhibited in the Texas General, Texas Fine Arts Association annual, the Southwestern Exhibition of Prints and Drawings, and the American Watercolor Society annual, as well as local exhibitions. 

His first solo show was at Amarillo in 1946. 

Today, his works can be found in the College of the Southwest, Hobbs, New Mexico; Canyon Public Library; Pampa-Lovett Memorial Library; the Midland Public Library; the Amarillo Municipal Building; Bank Southwest, Midland; Amarillo Savings and Loan; and the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum. 

Recently, Texas Tech University commissioned Caballero to create a copper enamel mural for their new pharmacy school building.

He is listed in Who's Who in Texas (1968); Outstanding Educators in America (1973); Who's Who in American Art (1974); and Who Was Who in American Art (1999). 

Dr. Caballero passed away on September 25, 2010.
