Charles Napier and Arthur Nielsen Jr Pass Away as Well

Posted: October 6th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Charles Napier and Arthur Nielsen Jr Pass Away as WellSubmit Comment
After finding out that Apple founder Steve Jobs passed away, now comes word that another actor and another influential person have passed away.

The first is Charles Napier (pictured), who is best known for playing Murdock in "Rambo: First Blood Part II," and starring in "The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard," "Star Trek" TV series and "Maniac Cop 2." He died on Wednesday at Memorial Hospital in California. He was 75 years old.

And on Monday, Arthur C. Nielsen Jr passed away from Parkinson's disease. He was 92 years old. Nielsen's father started the famous company that monitors how well television shows perform. But in the beginning, the father only measured performance in factories. The business eventually went broke during the Great Depression and Nielsen Jr stepped in to turn the company around. He started by measuring sales in grocery and drug stores and then decided to go into measuring the popularity of various radio shows.

"[Nielsen Jr] really was the father of what Nielsen is today," said chief researcher at CBS. "His father started the company, and when he turned it over to Art Jr it was just the beginning of the media measurement business. He really was a real model for what a corporate leader should be. I say this despite the fact that he ran a monopoly."
