This biography from the Archives of AskART:
George A. Dowling (1879-1972)

He was born in Wisconsin in July of 1879.  During some of his life he was an illustrator for a newspaper in Ft. Worth, TX around 1907.  He married a Wisconsin girl in 1908 and whisked her off to Texas.  He later worked in Hollywood as an artist doing western paintings for several studios.  While in Hollywood, he worked with Tom Mix, Hoot Gibson, and Wyatt Earp.  

He worked for the Oregonian newspaper in Portland, OR, as a cartoonist.  It was in Portland that he and his wife raised their family, a boy named George M and a girl named Elenore Diane.  Elenore Diane was somewhat of an artist herself.  George M had an appointment to Westpoint but gave it up to help the family finances.  He later joined the Oregon State Police.  He captured two criminals who were on the FBI most wanted list.  The senior Mr. Dowling hearing of his son's exploits drew upon his memory of the landscape and his imagination, painted a picture of the capture which is featured on this website.  

Mr. Dowling lived an exciting life in some very demanding times living long enough to see his grandsons graduate from college and establish families of their own.  He passed away in 1972 having spent much of the last forty years of his life painting.  

My most vivid memory of him was painting western murals on my bedroom walls;  the paintings were amazingly lifelike and some were humorous.  As happy men do he whistled and chuckled when he painted.  

Information provided by the artist's grandson, George W. Dowling.
