William Jack "Three Fingers" White (1900-January 23, 1934) was a Prohibition gangster and member of the Chicago Outfit, a respected gunman for both Torrio and Capone. His nickname was related to a childhood accident after a falling brick from a construction site had crushed his right hand, resulting in the loss of two fingers. Self-conscious, White would wear a glove in public with cotton stuffed in the empty fingers.
