    Can’t find anything about his mother’s side, other than her brother’s wedding announcement. His grandparents lived in Homewood, IL at the time (1968).

    I don’t know whether to consider him handsome or unattractive.

    His mother’s name is Kate Claire Crowley and she’s a college professor at USC. I don’t know about her ethnicity, but Crowley is an Irish surname.
