Who was Earl Anthony?

Earl Roderick Anthony was a left-handed American professional bowler who amassed records of 41 titles and six bowler of the year awards on the Professional Bowlers Association Tour. His title count was amended to 43 in 2008, when the PBA chose to include ABC Masters titles earned by a PBA member as PBA Tour titles. He is widely credited for having increased bowling's popularity in the United States. He was the first bowler to earn over $100,000 in a season and $1,000,000 in lifetime earnings. His ten professional major titles—six PBA National Championships, two Firestone Tournament of Champions titles, and two ABC Masters titles—are tied with Pete Weber for the most by any bowler.

Never brash or flashy in a crew-cut and plastic-frame "marshwood" style eyewear, Anthony was dubbed "Square Earl" by fellow pro bowlers.
