Bernard Rapoport, an outspoken liberal and a stalwart of Texas Democratic politics, died late Thursday night in Waco.
He was 94.
Rapoport was born in San Antonio in 1917, the son of Jewish Russian immigrants. He graduated from the University of Texas, where he later served as chairman of the Board of Regents, and married Audre Newman in 1942. The two celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary earlier this year.
