William Harris Crawford (1772–1834) was an American politician during the early 19th century. He served as United States Secretary of War from 1815 to 1816 and United States Secretary of the Treasury from 1816 to 1825, and was a candidate for President of the United States in 1824. He suffered a stroke in 1823 that badly impeded him during the election the next year. While he was able to capture some of the electoral vote, it was not enough when the race went to the House of Representatives. After the election, he became a state court judge in Georgia.
