Glenn Crawford was born in Ohio in 1930. He graduated from the Ohio State University medical school around 1956. He then joined the United States Native Health Service and was sent to work in Bethel, Alaska.
June Crawford was born in England in 1933. She moved to the United States and began working as a nurse for the United States Health Service. She was also sent to Bethel, which was how she met Glenn.
After their service in Bethel, Glenn and June moved to Anchorage, Alaska. The Health Service occasionally sent Glenn to various places in Alaska during his career. Their first home and doctor’s office was 203 Fireweed Lane. Around 1962 the family moved to 520 N Street but continued to use the Fireweed Lane property to see patients. Around 1979, the couple and their children moved to Washington. Glenn Crawford died in 1992.
