Sir John Crawford was a great Australian civil servant and a distinguished leader of the Australian National University. As an official and as a scholar, he exercised remarkable influence nationally and internationally. He was a key player in reorienting Australian economic policy in the mid-twentieth century and, along with a few counterparts in Japan and the United States, a pioneer in the building of an Asia-Pacific economic and policy community.
