Biography

Charles Crowe was an international sport shooting competitor for Canada for several decades, but perhaps his greatest success came at the 1908 Summer Olympics. There, alongside William Eastcott, Harry Kerr, Dugald McInnes, William Smith, and Bruce Williams, he won a bronze medal in the military rifle team event, after shooting the nation’s second-highest individual score, behind Smith. He also competed in the 1000 yard free rifle and placed joint-ninth with countryman Fred Utton. Crowe participated in numerous editions of Britain’s prestigious Bisley tournament, earning the highest Canadian score three times, and captained the team in 1920 and 1926. He also served as president of the Dominion Rifle Association and in the Royal Canadian Army, eventually reaching the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. Sport shooting was not his only successful athletic endeavor either; he was also an Ontario provincial champion in curling. By career he was involved in the poultry industry, served as an organist and choirmaster at the local Methodist church, and was also an accomplished cellist. He also had several notable family members: his wife, Edith, and daughter, Greta, were pioneering women in regional education and his son, George, was a well-known Montreal architect.
