Crawford first moved to Pittsburgh in 1922 as a graduate student. He received his doctorate in 1926 and became an instructor and eventually professor of biology starting in 1924. He served as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences from 1935 to 1956 and served as Secretary of the University and Dean of the Faculties.
Crawford Hall, completed in 1968 on Tennyson Avenue on Pitt's campus, is named in his honor.
