Biography

A member of Hamilton, Ontario’s Leander Boat Club, Joe Harris qualified to represent Canada at two editions of the Olympic Games during his rowing career. In 1932 he won a bronze medal in the coxed eights with Don Boal, Earl Eastwood, Harry Fry, Cedric Liddell, Les MacDonald, Stanley Stanyar, Al Taylor, and Bill Thoburn, finishing only 0.4 seconds ahead of the British crew in the final. In 1936 he was eliminated in the opening round of the eights alongside Fry, Liddell, MacDonald, Jack Cunningham, Charles Matteson, Grey McLeish, Sandy Saunders, and Ben Sharpe. He was also a member of the Leander crews that won Canada’s Henley Royal Regatta every year from 1932 through 1936. He retired from active competition after his second Olympics.
