Who is Robert Crawford Jr.?

Robert Lawrence Crawford, Jr., is an American actor who portrayed the character Andy Sherman on the NBC television series Laramie in 1959, 1960, and 1962. He was cast as the younger brother of Slim Sherman, portrayed by John Smith, owner of the fictitious Sherman Ranch and Relay Station some twelve miles east of Laramie, Wyoming. Their co-star was Robert Fuller in the role of former gunfighter Jess Harper and in the first season Hoagy Carmichael as the ranch housekeeper Jonesy.
