Dr. Rudolf Callmann (1892-1976) was a US-American legal professional of Jewish-German descent. The World War I veteran had been a member of Centralverein deutscher Staatsbürger jüdischen Glaubens (C.V.). In 1936 he left for the U.S., where he published an influential study on competition law. Since the 1950s Callmann held high positions in several Jewish organisations, including a vice presidency of the Jewish Claims Conference. See Röder, W. and H.
