Clinton Eastwood, Jr., better known as American actor Clint Eastwood, lived all over central California during the first 10 years of his life, as his father moved the family to find work in the years following the Great Depression. By the time he was 10, Clinton Eastwood, Jr., had lived in San Francisco, Sacramento, Oakland, and even Redwood, California. The 1940 U.S. census finds him with his parents, Clinton Eastwood, Sr. and Ruth (Riding) Eastwood, and his sister, Jeanne, living in a rented house at 4003 Alameda Avenue in Oakland, California. His father took jobs wherever he could find them, including the job of gas station attendant in Sacramento; in 1940 he was working as a "jewelry salesman" in a jewelry store. Clint's mom, Ruth, was also working, as a "key punch operator."1
