A member of Hamilton, Ontario’s Leander Boat Club, Earl Eastwood’s first major international tournament was the 1930 British Empire Games, where he won a bronze medal in the coxed eights alongside Don Boal, Harry Fry, Les MacDonald, Al Taylor, Bill Thoburn, and the non-Olympians Joseph Bowkes, William Moore, and Joseph Zabinsky. He was equally successful at the 1932 Summer Olympics, where he won a bronze medal in the eights (with Boal, Fry, MacDonald, Taylor, Thoburn, Joe Harris, Cedric Liddell, and Stanley Stanyar), finishing only 0.4 seconds ahead of the British crew in the final. He was also a member of the Leander crew that won Canada’s Henley Royal Regatta in 1932. After retiring from active competition, Eastwood moved to the United States, where he had a career as a railroad worker, but returned to Canada prior to his death in 1968.
