Lawyer.

Born at Owen Sound, Ontario on 15 September 1858, son of the local postmaster, he graduated from the University of Toronto then studied law, being called to the Ontario Bar shortly before moving to Manitoba in the 1880s, where he was a partner in the firm of Robertson, Campbell, and Crawford. He was made a Queen’s Counsel in 1893. He was also involved with the Home Investment Loan and Savings Company, the Real Estate Investment Company, and the Scottish Investment Company.

On 14 July 1887, he married Lilie Elizabeth Creasor at Owen Sound. They had four children: H. A. C. Crawford, Georgina Crawford (b 1890), Constance J. Crawford (b 1893), and Theodore Robert Crawford (b 1899). He was a member of the Masons, Odd Fellows, and the Canadian Order of Forresters.

He died while on holiday at Owen Sound, Ontario on 18 August 1903.
