US Congressman. He served during the Civil War in the Confederate Army as a Private in Company C of the 4th Texas Cavalry, which was part of General Thomas Green's cavalry brigade. After the collapse of the Confederacy he returned to Texas, and was admitted to the Texas Bar in 1872. He served as De Witt County's prosecuting attorney from 1876 to 1880, and in the Texas State Senate from 1882 to 1886. When Texas Congressman William Henry Crain (Kleberg's law partner) died in office in 1896, Rudolph Kleberg was elected as a Democrat to fill the vacancy, and represented Texas's 11th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives from April 7, 1896 to March 3, 1903. He resumed his law career after his Congressional tenure, and passes away in Austin, Texas at the age of 77. His nephew, Richard Mifflin Kleberg, served as a United States Congressman from Texas from 1931 to 1945.
