Frank H. Rudkin

Frank H. Rudkin (April 23, 1864 – May 3, 1931) was a United States federal judge.

Born in Vernon, Ohio, Rudkin attended Washington and Lee University and read law in 1887 to enter the Bar. He was in private practice in Ellensburg, Washington from 1887 to 1890, and in North Yakima, Washington from 1890 to 1901. He was a judge on the Superior Court of Washington from 1901 to 1905, and on the Supreme Court of Washington from 1905 to 1911.

On January 17, 1911, Rudkin was nominated by President William H. Taft to a seat on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Washington vacated by Edward Whitson. Rudkin was confirmed by the United States Senate on January 31, 1911, and received his commission the same day. Rudkin's service was terminated on January 17, 1923, due to appointment to another judicial position.

On January 5, 1923, President Warren G. Harding elevated Rudkin to a seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit vacated by William W. Morrow. Rudkin was confirmed by the United States Senate on January 9, 1923, receiving his commission the same day. He served in that position until his death.
