"Andrew Crawford Clarkson, Jr. of Columbia, SC died on September 27, 2013. He was the son of Andrew Crawford Clarkson, Sr. of Columbia, SC and Jennie Louise Taber of Fort Motte, SC. Born in Columbia December 17, 1919, he was educated in the Columbia city schools graduating in 1937 from Columbia High School. In 1941 he was graduated in absentia from the University of South Carolina having received a commission as Ensign USNR. In 1949 he married Sarah Fairbanks Bull of Georgetown, SC. Crawford Clarkson’s life was animated by an abiding love for country, his native state, and his family. He was a lively conversationalist, a tireless encourager of his children, lover of travel, and treasured his Scottish heritage. An accomplished businessman, his steady wisdom and consummate professionalism made him a behind the scenes trusted advisor to politicians, governors, university presidents, church leaders, business colleagues, clients, and his own children. A passion for sailing, developed as a Sea Scout on Lake Murray, was reflected in Mr. Clarkson’s service as a naval officer during World War II and the Korean conflict. He served aboard the high speed destroyer minesweeper USS Stansbury (DMS 8) July 1941 to July 1943, and then aboard the USS Howard (DMS 7) as executive officer and navigator. Tasked with keeping supply lanes open despite threats from German U- boats, Mr. Clarkson’s convoy duty ranged the North Atlantic, the Caribbean and later the Pacific. He also saw action during the landings at the Naval Battle at Casablanca, French Morocco in November 1942. During the Howard’s Leyte Gulf operations in the Philippines, Mr. Clarkson saw his first kamikazes. After World War II ended, Mr. Clarkson returned to Columbia and joined his father, holder of CPA SC certificate #1, at A.C. Clarkson and Company, CPAs. He was awarded C.P.A. certification in 1948. In 1952 Mr. Clarkson was recalled by the Navy during the Korean Emergency and ordered as Executive Officer of the USS Cony (DDE 508). Upon returning to Columbia, Mr. Clarkson entered USC School of Law—attending class and working as an accountant by day while studying law at night. He was graduated in 1955 and admitted to the S.C. Bar and the Federal Bar including ultimately the United States Supreme Court. In 1979 Mr. Clarkson retired from the Navy as Captain "
