Mr. Crofoot was born in Pontiac January 12, 1853, and his early educational advantages were those of the public schools of his native city. After taking a course in pharmacy at the University of Michigan he was for a time employed in a drug store in the city of Chicago. He came to Pontiac in the fall of 1877 to become quartermaster in Michigan Military Academy at Orchard Lake, holding the position until the next spring, when he returned to the drug business in Chicago. He returned to Pontiac in 1879, engaging independently in the drug business, to which he continued to give his attention for thirty-eight years, as previously noted.
