German second generation astrologer, the son of Ludwig Rudolph and a member of the Hamburg Uranian School, an industrial manager, lecturer, author, bookseller and publisher. An advocate of Uranian astrology (A. Witte), he has been since 1976 the president of the Hamburger Schule (now: "Astrologische Studiengesellschaft Hamburg.") In 1978 he took over the Witte-Verlag and since 1980 he worked as chief editor of the Uranian magazine, Hamburger Hefte. A humanistic and positive thinker, his books include "The Hamburg School of Astrology, 1973 and his is co-author of "Handbuch zur Astrologie der Hamburger Schule."

He was invited to speak in the United States by the Uranian SIG of NCGR for the celebration on July 26, 2005 of the group's founding 25 years prior. On July 20, 2005 at 7:00 PM EDT (in New York), Liane Wade, President of the SIG, received a call from him reporting that he was being held a prisoner and would be sent back to Germany the following day by US authorities. It was not clear why he was not allowed to enter the United States. Liane Wade reports that he had been in a Russian prisoner of war camp after WWII, and has been in the USA nine times since the end of the war.

His companion, an Italian-born woman named Lietta Catoni, born on December 12, 1941, near Rome, according to Liane, was faced with the decision of whether to stay in the United States or return to Italy.

Rudolph died unexpected on the 13th of October 2008, shortly before 9 AM in Hamburg/Germany.
