Earth Day

From Frederick, Oklahoma, William H. “Bill” Crawford always has been dedicated to his community and the natural world that is part of it. In 1970, Crawford returned to Frederick, Oklahoma after serving in the Army National Guard. He was the chairman of the First National Bank and quickly began to revitalize Frederick’s economic infrastructure. In 1988, Crawford took over the First Southwest Corporation and expanded it by unprecedented margin. The banking world is not the only industry that Crawford has worked to preserve and expand. Crawford also is responsible for preserving and restoring 7,200 acres of natural wetlands. He knows the importance of keeping our Earth healthy and protected. As such, on our Earth Day edition of OHOF in the Wild, we honor William H. “Bill” Crawford. Follow along as we learn about the Earth and the different ways we can protect it!
