Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Dragnet's Sgt. Friday

Answer: Jack Webb

Born John Randolph Webb in California, Webb's acting career began with a stint as announcer of his own radio show. From there he moved into films. After appearing in the film "He Walked By Night," based on a true murder case, he created the character of Joe Friday. "Dragnet," a long-running weekly series, featured episodes based on true crime cases.
2. Nightclub owner, shot and killed Lee Harvey Oswald

Answer: Jack Ruby

Millions of Americans watched that November day in 1963 as Ruby stepped out from a crowd and shot Lee Harvey Oswald, who had been apprehended as the alleged assassin of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. There are those who still believe that the motive behind the Oswald shooting was much more sinister than the excuse Ruby officially gave. Ruby, born Jacob Rubenstein, owned strip clubs in Dallas and reportedly had connections to organized crime.

He died of cancer while in prison.
3. Pop singer, actor, son of actress Irene Hervey

Answer: Jack Jones

Grammy Award-winning singer Jack Jones was born John Allan Jones to actors Allan Jones and Irene Hervey. He branched out from popular ballads to jazz and big-band tunes with favored results. His pleasant-sounding voice has entertained listeners for decades, myself included. Jones appeared in "Juke Box Rhythm," his first film role.

It is Jones' voice that can be heard during the opening credits singing the theme song of the popular TV series "The Love Boat."
4. Pathologist known as "Dr. Death"

Answer: Jack Kevorkian

There are two schools of thinking regarding Dr. Kavorkian. The first considered him to be a champion of the terminally ill. His strong beliefs in physician-assisted suicide alienated other doctors but helped some patients to ease their suffering. The second school of thought considered him to be a murderer.

He lost his medical license but continued to illegally administer drugs and practice euthanasia. For that lack of judgement he was imprisoned for second-degree murder in 1999 and served eight years of what was originally a much longer sentence.
5. World heavyweight boxing champion

Answer: Jack Dempsey

Known as the "Manassa Mauler," William Harrison Dempsey was born in Manassa, Colorado in 1895. His success as a world champion boxer came from his exceptional ability to throw a punch and his aggressive techniques in the ring. From 1919-1927 he ruled the world of boxing. In 1951 he was inducted into 'The Ring's Boxing Hall of Fame'.
6. Lead singer and guitarist of "The White Stripes"

Answer: Jack White

White started out as a drummer for several bands in Detroit. Along with Meg White, he founded the band "The White Stripes" in 1997. Their "White Blood Cells" album, released in 2001, was a big success internationally and set them on the path to success in the music field. Colors have clearly been important to Jack. White and Elton John recently teamed up to record an original blues song titled "Two Fingers of Whiskey."
7. Academy Award-winning actor, often co-starred with Walter Matthau

Answer: Jack Lemmon

As far as acting goes, Jack Lemmon was as versatile as they come. In addition to the classic "Some Like It Hot," Lemmon starred in a long list of comedic and dramatic films including "The Apartment," "The China Syndrome," and "The Odd Couple." He won a Best Actor Oscar for "Save the Tiger." 'Grumpy Old Men,' 'The Odd Couple,' and 'The Fortune Cookie' are a few of the films in which the two veteran actors co-starred together and did so brilliantly.
8. Novelist and poet, associated with the "Beat Generation"

Answer: Jack Kerouac

Kerouac was known for his stream of consciousness style of writing. Mostly remembered for his novel "On the Road," Kerouac and writers such as Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs defined a new counterculture movement known as the "Beat Generation." It gave birth to the hippie movement of the 1960s. The author died at a relatively young age, 47, from cirrhosis of the liver.
9. Australian racing car driver, won three Formula One championships

Answer: Jack Brabham

Brabham was a man of varied interests. As a young man he owned his own engineering company. He took up midget-car driving and later developed an interest in building his own cars. He met his match as a racecar driver, winning the Formula One (F1) Grand Prix world drivers' championship three times. He also won the Dutch Grand Prix in 1966.
10. American businessman, co-founder of "Twitter"

Answer: Jack Dorsey

Computers have been of interest to Dorsey since he was young. While still a high school student he became interested in computer programming. Dorsey created dispatch software, stemming from an interest in linking the communication between cab drivers, delivery vans, and other commercial vehicles. Twitter, a social media website, was launched in 2006 as a way for users to communicate quickly and easily. Along with Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams co-founded the popular website.
