Apart from his political career Crawford was Chancellor of the University of Manchester between 1922 and 1940 and a trustee of the National Portrait Gallery. He also became a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1900 and of the Royal Society in 1924. This portrait is a unique early working proof impression, with pencil annotations by the artist.
