  • Notes 
    • Capt. Frederick Leif Eareckson graduated from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute in 1941 and during WWII adjusted magnetic compasses on ships leaving Baltimore, MD. He graduated from the Univ. of Michigan in 1948 with a degree in naval architecture, and served on Navy destroyers in the Mediterranean and Korea. He earned his master's degree in naval architecture from the Webb Institute in 1956. He served as ship superintendent at the Charleston Naval Shipyard, and completed tours at Supervisor of Shipbuilding and Commander Submarine Force Atlantic (Groton, CT), and the Bureau of Ships, Washington, D.C., in support of the strategic program to design, construct and deploy nuclear ballistic missile submarines. In 1969 he reported to the Norfolk Naval Shipyard as planning officer, and lead the Ship Design Department at the Naval Ship Engineering Center in Hyattsville, MD, before retiring from the Navy in 1975.

      Leif built his first sailboat as a teenager, and owned and successfully raced several sailboats on the Chesapeake Bay. He chaired membership committee of the Chesapeake Bay Yacht Racing Association for over 20 years and was a member of the Annapolis Yacht Club for 63 years.

      Leif was baptized at St. Michael and All Angels Church in Baltimore, MD where his parents had been married. He was confirmed at the Pro-Cathedral on 7 Feb 1937 by Harold N. Arrowsmith, Rector; Edward T. Helfeneteen, Bishop of Maryland.
