I've considered doing this post for quite some time. There are some well-known public figures with a "junior" on the end of their name. Granted, some juniors are obvious as to who the senior was and what they did because junior followed in their footsteps (Frank Sinatra, Hank Williams, Douglas Fairbanks, John F. Kennedy, Al Gore, Ed Begley, Alan Hale, Freddie Prinze).

These are some famous juniors, who were either in another line of work or eclipsed their father's notority.

Norman Swartzkopf Sr. - Head of New Jersey State Police and narrator of the radio show Gangbusters.

Efrem Zimbalist Sr. - Violinist, composer and symphony conductor.

Harry Connick Sr.- District Attorney for New Orleans.

Robert Downey Sr. - Director of the movies Putney Swope and Greaser's Palace.

Cuba Gooding Sr. - Lead singer of the 70's R & B group The Main Ingredient (guy in middle)

Sammy Davis Sr. - Vaudeville dancer

Martin Luther King Sr. -Minister

Morton Downey Sr. -Irish crooner and radio show host

Kurt Vonnegut Sr. - Influential architect who designed many of the art deco buildings in Indianapolis. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a photo of him.
