InfoArthur MacArthur III (June 1, 1876 – December 2, 1923) was a United States Navy officer, whose active-duty career extended from the Spanish-American War through World War I. He was the elder brother of General Douglas MacArthur (1880–1964).

The son of United States Army General Arthur MacArthur, Jr. (1845–1912), he chose a career in the Navy instead of following his father, graduating from the United States Naval Academy in 1896.

During the Spanish-American War, Ensign MacArthur served aboard the steam yacht Vixen (PY-4) in the Battle of Santiago. He later participated in naval operations during the Philippine-American War and the Boxer Rebellion.

In 1901, he married Mary H. McCalla (1877–1959), the daughter of Rear Admiral Bowman H. McCalla. They had one son, whom they named Douglas (in honor of his brother).

MacArthur commanded submarine Grampus (SS-4), destroyer McCall (DD-28), minelayer San Francisco (CM-2), armored cruiser South Dakota (ACR-9) and light cruiser Chattanooga (CL-18). For distinguished work in protecting convoys from U-boats in the Battle of the Atlantic in 1918, he was awarded the Navy Cross, the Distinguished Service Medal and was promoted to Captain.

Captain MacArthur died in Washington D.C. of appendicitis in 1923, and was buried in Arlington National Cemetery near his parents.
