What Color Eyes Did John F. Kennedy Have?

President John Fitzgerald Kennedy had eyes greenish-gray in color, according to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. John F. Kennedy’s eye color was inherited from his parents, Joseph Patrick Kennedy and Rose Elizabeth Fitzgerald.

Kennedy also inherited his parents’ blood type, O positive. He had reddish-brown hair and stood 6 feet 1 inch tall. At the time of his assassination on Nov. 22, 1963, in Dallas, he weighed 172 and 1/2 pounds. His shoe size was 10C.

Perhaps as a nod to his Irish ancestral roots, one of Kennedy’s favorite songs reportedly was “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling.”
