PAUL F. CROW, 84, formerly of R.D. 1, Charleroi, Pennsylvania, (Fallowfield Twp.) died August 6, 1990, in the home of his daughter, Mrs. Frances C. Zollars of R.D.2, Monongahela, Pennsylvania, following a lengthy illness.

He was born December 12, 1905, son of David Thompson and Millie E. Wilson Crow.

Mr. Crow was a 1922 graduate of Charleroi High School and a graduate of California State College. He taught at Union Independent in Somerset Township for two years and then for the next 15 years in Fallowfield Township Schools.

He was also employed as an equipment superintendent with Patterson Supply Company of Monongahela for many years until his retirement.

In 1957 Mr. Crow, along with the Fullerton brothers of Burgettstown, founded the Tri-State Historical Steam Engine Association, Inc., and served as its only secretary until the time of his illness in 1986. He was also elected to position of Secretary Ex-Officio March 1987 (our by-laws were changed to allow this to happen). The association conducts annual exhibitions at the Mineral Beach site in Finleyville.

From 1963 until 1983, he headed a group of fellow steam enthusiasts at the Canfield, Ohio fair for a steam power display and exhibition.
