Carl Jerome "Jerry" Barber, (April 25, 1916 - September 23, 1994) was raised in Jacksonville, Illinois. He was a professional golfer and won the PGA Championship Tournament in 1961. That same year he also served as Ryder Cup Team Captain in Lancashire, England. He was often referred to in the media as "little Jerry Barber" because he stood only five feet, five inches.

Barber and his wife Lucile, who died of cancer in 1968, had five children: Tom, Nancy, twins Sandra and Sally, and Roger.
