The Strange Case of the Albino Family
- or Was It?by Chris Holly

Years ago when my mother was still living we were sitting outside on my deck sharing some lunch when my mother looked over to me and said “ Remember the Albino family that use to live in our area that always shopped at Gertz Department store?”
I hadn’t thought about Gertz Department store which had long ago gone out of business for years much less the Albino family.
My mother went on about how striking they were and how well dressed and groomed they were. My mother commented many times back when she saw them how beautiful the family was and always noticed what they were wearing. I never thought much about it then as I was in my teens but as my mother went on and on about the Albino family I realized how very strange they really were.
The family consisted of two adults and three children. All of them were albinos. I have only seen a few other people who have this albino condition and really did not note the differences in this family and the other albinos I have seen. Talking to my mother about this family I began to realize they were truly unusual people.
The five members of this family all were 6ft in height including the mother and daughter. The male members stood between 6ft –3 inches to 6ft- 5 inches. They were extremely tall people. When they walked through the department store they stood a head above most of the other shoppers.
Each of them had thick full pure white hair. They were beautiful people with high cheekbones and straight model like features. Their skin was white – pure white. They all had the same color eyes, which were clear, big, and very light blue. They kept to themselves. They would stay together when they shopped and seemed to be quiet polite people.
It wasn’t until years later and I had that conversation with my mother about that family that I realized they were a very different group of people. I thought about the possibility of two beautiful albino people who looked so much alike in height, looks and facial features meeting and marrying. Although this is possible I knew the odds had to be nearly impossible. I then recalled reading an article while in college in the late 1970’s that talked about all the eye problems that went hand and hand with those who were albinos. I also read that most eye color for the typical albino runs towards the pinkish reddish tint. I know that there are degrees of the condition which would have a lesser or greater effect on things like eye and skin color (or lack of it) in those who are albinos. I did not read about any who had clear big blue eyes.
