Being Hal Ashby

Nick Dawson

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter provides information on Hal Ashby's personal and family background. Ashby was born on September 2, 1929 in Ogden, Utah. He was the fourth child of James Ashby and Eileen Hetzler. Ashby had a dysfunctional family and though about 80 to 90 percent of Ogden residents were Mormons, his family never became active practitioners. His parents got divorced in 1935 when Ashby was only six years old, and on March 22, 1942, his father committed suicide. The impact of James' death on his family is incalculable, but it was arguably Hal who struggled most with the loss.
