American Democratic politician, entrepreneur, and businessman, who served as the 55th governor of Kentucky (1979-1983), although he may be best known for building Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) into a multimillion-dollar restaurant chain.

The son of a U.S. congressman, Brown's talent for business became evident in college, where he made a substantial amount of money selling Encyclopædia Britannica sets. After briefly practising law with his father, he purchased Kentucky Fried Chicken from founder Harland Sanders in 1964. Brown turned the company into a worldwide success, and sold his interest in the company for a huge profit in 1971. During the 1970s, he also owned, at various times, three professional basketball teams.

Brown was married three times, the second time to former Miss America Phyllis George. Among his children are news anchor Pamela Ashley Brown and former Secretary of State of Kentucky John Young Brown III.

John Y. Brown Jr. died at a hospital in Lexington on 22 November 2022 at the age of 88. He had been dealing with health complications derived from COVID-19 since the summer.
