(1855-1925)

One of Texas' most forceful leaders; 32 years in office as attorney general, governor, U.S. Senator.

Born in Alabama; in childhood moved with parents to Texas. Lived in Jefferson 1861-1887. Was educated Virginia Military Institute, University of Virginia. Began practice of law in Jefferson, 1877, in firm of his father, United States Congressman D.B. Culberson.

He moved to Dallas 1887. Won elections as attorney general, 1890 and 1892.
In this office recovered for Texas more than 2,000,000 acres of public domain illegally claimed by railroads. He also gave strong support to reforms of Gov. James S. Hogg, notably in antitrust laws, and creation of Railroad Commission.
