The Crawford Co-operative Company was established in Crawford, Nebraska, in 1907 for the purpose of “buying, selling, and holding real estate; engaging in the general merchandise business; and buying and selling of all kinds of farm products, poultry, and eggs.” The corporation’s founders were William J.A. Ramm, C.H. Britton, William A. Eversall, Bernard Sorsten, J.H. Hulsemann, and Erwin Kluman. Its governing body consisted of a seven member Board of Directors elected by the firm’s stockholders. Although in the articles of incorporation, only a twenty-five year existence was anticipated, the firm survived until June of 1977. At that time the Board of Directors passed a resolution recommending that the Crawford Co-operative be dissolved.
