Rudolph Carstanjen, who served on the San Antonio Police Force from 1915 to 1939, passes away at a local hospital. For many years, Mr. Carstanjen served as a traffic officer at Houston and Main streets. He suffered a heart attack last week when he was notified of the death of his son, Lt. Rudolph Carstanjen, Jr., who died in a plane crash off the coast of Cuba. The younger Carstanjen was a 1932 graduate of Brackenridge High School. There will be a double funeral pending the arrival of the son’s body.
