No drawings but there is a collected overview of Harvey Crawford and his designs - including the CLM - in the EAA's Vintage Aviations Vol 6 No 10 (Oct 2008).

The CLM - 'Crawford Light Monoplane'? - was built by the Crawford All Metal Airplane Co., Inc. (sometimes listed as Crawford All-Metal Airplane and Motor). Started by William F. and Harvey (or Harvy) Crawford. Both brothers were designers but the CLM was designed by Harvey.

The sole prototype Crawford CLM, X12207, was a 6-place cabin monoplane with typical Junkers corrigated metal construction. Wing design was said to be based upon the low-winged F13 or W33. Power was provided by a single 220 hp Wright Whirlwind radial. Length of the CLM was 28 feet, wingspan was 42 feet.

Popular Mechanics, Nov 1931 (Vol.56, No.5), Metal Plane That's Lighter Lifts a Heavy Load, pg 737.
