Jack Ashington was short and had blue eyes.
Gail Unger says that according to her mother (hearsay from Jack), the white streak in his hair occurred overnight.
"It seems he was 27, down a manhole doing repairs, and a train passed overhead, luckily not taking his head off.
That could be true or [loss of pigmentation] just happened to kick in about then."
