Ben Carson's older brother's name is Curtis Carson. Just like Ben, he also performed well academically. He is now a manager for Honeywell in the aircraft landing division.
The reason the two are so interesting is because of Ben Carson's book, Gifted Hands. A self written autobiography that goes over his life as an inner city kid with little motivation and bad grades. A kid who grows up to become the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University Hospital at the age of 33.
Talk about motivation. We imagine Curtis Carson looks something like his brother, there is a picture of Ben below.
