Silent Generation Celebrities.

A list of celebrities and other notable figures who belong to the Silent Generation.

The Silent Generation is defined as people who were born between 1928 and the end of 1944.

The Silent Generation came before the Baby Boomer generation. However, people will sometimes mistakenly refer to them as boomers.

It is believed that the name originates from this generation's perceived silence. In other words, they grew up during the McCarthyism era when times were tough and it was better to hold one's tongue. People who were born in this generation are sometimes referred to as "Builders" or the "Lucky Few".

This list is ordered alphabetically.
