Harry M. Wurzbach (May 19, 1874 -- November 6, 1931) was the first Republican since Reconstruction to represent Texas for more than one term in the U.S. House of Representatives. He held the old Fourteenth District seat from 1921-1929 and from 1930-1931. Wurzbach was born in San Antonio to Charles Louis Wurzbach and the former Kate Fink. He attended public schools and graduated from the law department of Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, in 1896. He was thereafter admitted to the bar and established his practice in San Antonio. He married Frances Darden Wagner that same year.
Wurzbach volunteered as a private in Company F, First Regiment, Texas Volunteer Infantry during the Spanish-American War. After the war, he relocated to the town of Seguin outside San Antonio and continued his law practice. He was the Guadalupe County prosecuting attorney from 1900-1902 and the county judge (administrative position) from 1904-1910.
