1960’s Headmaster Davie Crawford

Now here’s a face many people may remember as children. This is Davie Crawford, headmaster of high Blantyre School on Hunthill Road. People may remember this man as being strict, but fair.

Davie also stood as a prospective SNP councillor for the area but was never elected. According to my notes, he lived in the school house on Hunthill Road adjacent to the School. David was apparently Scotland’s foremost sweet pea expert.

Do YOU remember Mr Crawford? What else can you tell me about him?
