Biographical history

Robert Pridham Crawford (1923-1978), engineer and college administrator, was educated at the University of Toronto and joined the International Nickel Company as an engineer in 1949. He remained with that firm in different capacities until 1967 when he was appointed president of Georgian College of Applied Arts and Technology. Crawford was also a hobby farmer in the Barrie area, raising and boarding horses on his property, Gladhill Farm.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of personal correspondence of Robert Pridham Crawford and his wife Elsie along with financial records relating to the Gladhill Farm, including income tax records, employment records, and cash books, cancelled cheques, and related material. There is also a good deal of printed material in the form of pamphlets, brochures, magazines and newspaper clippings. These deal with Crawford's professional activities as an engineer. There is also material describing Sudbury, Ontario and material concerned with horses, farming, and homemaking. In addition, the fonds contains notes and material from Crawford's student days at the University of Toronto. There are also some financial records from Dr. E. M. Crawford.
