Charles Forrest Curry Jr. (August 13, 1893 – October 7, 1972) was a U.S. Representative from California and the son of Charles Forrest Curry.

Born in San Francisco, California, Curry attended the public schools Howe's Academy in Sacramento, California as well as George Washington University and Georgetown University School of Law, Washington, D.C. He served as secretary to his father, Congressman Charles F. Curry from 1913 to 1917.

During the First World War, Curry Jr. enlisted in the Aviation Section, Signal Enlisted Reserve Corps, on August 15, 1917. There, he was commissioned a second lieutenant and served until May 22, 1919 with overseas service.
