Robert Justus Kleberg Jr. (1896-1974), grandson of King Ranch founder
Richard King, began to oversee ranch operations beginning in 1932 and served
as president of a family-owned corporation that eventually stretched into South
America, Australia, Africa, and Europe. Kleberg's outspoken opinions about the
United States' role in the fight against a foot-and-mouth disease outbreak in
Mexico that began in 1946 are included in John Ledbetter's article, "Fighting
Foot-and-Mouth Disease in Mexico: Popular Protest against Diplomatic
Decisions," which begins on page 387 of this issue.
