Barack Obama and his father, also named Barack Obama. Obama’s father left the family to study at Harvard when Barack was just 2, returning only once. Obama wrote poignantly about this visit in his memoir, remembering the basketball his father gave him, the African records they danced to, the Dave Brubeck concert they attended. Obama, then 10, never saw his father again.
