The Arnold-Hightower Family Collection includes football photographs of games played at Texas A&I College (now Texas A&M University-Kingsville) during 1938– 1939. Donald Hightower and Warren Arnold are featured in the photographs. In 1941 Arnold received offers to play pro football for the Detroit Lions, Philadelphia Eagles and the Chicago Bears. Two other Hightower students during those years were L. V. “Dugan” Hightower and Mildred Hightower. Wallace Arnold married Mildred Hightower and joined the Navy after America’s declaration of war. This collection contains material highlighting the college days and World War II of the Hightower and Arnold families.
