    Question Junior is used how?

    What is the proper way to list a name with "junior" in the title and where can i find proof? Having an argument at work about this. Is it Doe, Jr, John or Doe, John Jr? Thanks

    Re: Junior is used how?

    If you're addressing a letter, then you'd say "John Doe, Jr."

    If you're listing his name in a bibliography, most style guides (Associated Press, New York Times, etc) use the format of last name, first name, suffix, with the suffix preceded by a comma. So in such an index it would read "Doe, John, Jr."
