Frederick Leo "Guinea" Bawlf (1890–1964) of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Fred Bawlf, a forward, had a short but successful amateur career with the Winnipeg Victorias. In 1911 and 1912 he was an integral part of back-to-back Allan Cup championship winning teams.

Bawlf came from a big hockey family in Winnipeg. His elder brother Billy Bawlf (b. 1881) played with the Winnipeg Victorias and the Winnipeg Rowing Club between 1899–1904 and his younger brother Chauncey Bawlf (b. 1892) also played briefly with the Victorias before enlisting with the military in WW1.

Fred Bawlf's cousin Nick Bawlf (b. 1884) played with the Haileybury Comets, Toronto Ontarios/Shamrocks, Montreal Canadiens and Montreal Wanderers in the National Hockey Association (NHA) before embarking on a long coaching career with the Cornell University Big Red in Ithaca, NY between 1920–1942. Another cousin, Tommy Bawlf, was also an amateur hockey player in Canada and in the United States.
