John Crawford came to the U.S. from his native
Montreal when he was 17. He first joined
Deloitte, Plender, Griffiths & Co. and then came to
the New York Office of H&S when DPG merged
its domestic practice with ours in 1952. He was
admitted to partnership in 1964.
Fittingly, his accounting interests have a broad and
international flavor. He supervises the audit of
a major Middle East oil-producing client and of a
United Nations agency; he has also been
heavily involved in recruitment and professional
development for the New York staff. He is shown
here outside United Nations headquarters.
His activities have led to such adventures as
drinking coffee with a Bedouin tribesman in his tent
and talking with today's college generation.
"I may disagree with some of their campus protests,"
he says, "but I would most definitely defend their
right to protest."
His plea for individualism comes from his delight in
the differences among people and nations.
He and his wife, Eileen, have three children,
Mark, 9; Robert, 5; and Claire, IV2—"all different."
