Dates of existence
Born in Manitoba, Alan Crawley was admitted as a barrister and solicitor to the Bar of Manitoba in 1912. In addition to practising law he was a member of the Community Players of Winnipeg and developed a keen interest in contemporary poetry. After a serious illness in 1934 which was followed by the sudden and complete loss of sight, Alan Crawley and his wife, Jean Horn, moved to Victoria. In British Columbia, he founded and edited a highly-regarded quarterly publication of poetry, Contemporary Verse, from 1941 to 1952.
