Biography

Stanton Chapman Crawford was associated with the University of Pittsburgh for 43 years, most of them as Professor of Biology and Dean of the College (of Arts and Sciences). He was named as Acting Chancellor on June 18, 1955 when Chancellor Litchfield fell ill, a time when the University was in the midst of its severest financial difficulties. Litchfield resigned as Chancellor on July 26, 1965 and Crawford continued in his role. He shepherded the University's association with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania making significant structural changes to the Administration. He died of a heart attack on January 26, 1966 after having been in office for only seven months.
