    William G. Crozier, a native son of Piqua, Ohio, whose achievements entitle him to representation in a work of this sort, was born in this city January 3, 1853, a son of William R. and Katherine A. (Statler) Crozier, the former of whom was a pioneer carriage manufacturer at Piqua, having engaged in that business in the year 1835. To him and his wife were born nine children of whom only two are now living: Fannie C., the widow of Ed M. Wilbee, of Canada; and William G. of this review. William G. Crozier was educated in the schools of Piqua, and subsequent to his graduation went into the carriage business with his father, with whom he was associated for thirteen years. He then formed a connection which endured for ten years as shipping clerk with Snyder & Son, of the Pole and Shaft Company. At the expiration of his association with this concern, he bought stock in the L. C. and W. L. Cron Furniture Company, and for two years served this firm in the capacity of shipping clerk. He next went with t he Pullman Manufacturing Company in the interest of the Citizens National Bank, and continued in this employment for another period of two years. However, his interest had always been in the pole and shaft business. He entered the employ of the Pioneer Pole and Shaft Company, successors to the Snyder & Son Company, and in June, 1903, his executive ability was recognized by the appointment to the managership of the Piqua plant of this enterprise. Mr. Crozier was first married to Laura A., daughter of H. W. Dorwin, of Gettysburg, Ohio, and to this union was born one child, Henry Dorwin Crozier, who is in Rochester, N. Y., with the North East Electric Company. For his second wife, Mr. Crozier married Della V. Camp. Fraternally Mr. Crozier is a popular member of all bodies of the Masonic order and of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. In addition to the business activities already outlined, he has been for the past fifteen years a member of the directorate of the Third Savings and Loan Company. He has always taken an active interest in all movements which tended toward the public welfare, and at present is giving excellent service to his fellow citizens as a member of the city council. His stand during the recent war was beyond question, and he gave unstinted aid to all Government activities.
