. . . George Rudolph . . .

The son of Frank Rudolph and Eliza Rudolph, née Barrett, George Ernest Rudolph was born in Steiglitz, Victoria on 29 April 1901.

He married Edna Mary Maud White (1904–) on 14 April 1928.[1]

Said to be an idol of Richmond great Jack Dyer,[2] Rudolph was a follower, who played originally with Hawthorn in the Victorian Football Association (VFA), but was also used in key positions.

Having played with Camberwell Districts (1917), and with the East Burwood Football Club in 1918 and 1919, he was recruited by the VFA club Hawthorn. He played his first match on 10 July 1920[3] and played a total of 13 games, scoring seven goals in two seasons.[4]

Granted a permit in May 1922, by Hawthorn to play with Richmond,[5] Rudolph only played three matches with the Richmond First XVIII before he left to play country football.

On leaving Richmond, he played with the St. James Football Club in the Benalla-Yarrawonga Line Football Association for the remainder of the 1922 season.[6]
