Earl Hanley Beshlin (April 28, 1870 - July 12, 1971) was a Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania.

Earl H. Beshlin was born in Conewango Township, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Warren High School in Warren, Pennsylvania. He became a lawyer and engaged in private practice. He was elected Burgess of Warren County, Pennsylvania, from 1906 to 1909. He served as borough solicitor of Warren County from 1914 to 1918.

Beshlin elected as a Democrat and Prohibitionist to the Sixty-fifth Congress, by special election, to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of United States Representative Orrin D. Bleakley. Beshlin's Republican opponent in the 1917 special election, Captain Ulysses Grant Lyons, was actually declared the winner erroneously on November 7, 1917, by the New York Times.[1] Beshlin was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1918.
