Arthur Chapman was an early twentieth-century American poet and newspaper columnist. He wrote a sub-genre of American poetry known as Cowboy Poetry. His most famous poem was Out Where the West Begins. Circa 1910, after reading in an Associated Press report of a conference of the governors of the western states at which the geographic beginning of the U.S. West was disputed, he hastily composed what was to become his most famous poem, "Out Where the West Begins," celebrating the people and the land of the frontier.
