Name of creator
Born in England in 1920, Harold Norman "Andy" Andrews was a veteran of the Second World War, during which he participated in the 6th Airborne Division D-Day landings in Normandy. After the war, Andrews completed his studies in engineering and immigrated to Canada. He worked with the Royal Canadian Engineers and in 1967 he was the Canadian Forces Liaison to the Winnipeg Pan-American Games.
In 1972, Andrews joined Douglas College as the Chairman (and later Director) of Program Development until 1979 when he was appointed Vice-Principal of McBride Campus in New Westminster. He held this position for two years, at which time he became the Director of Program Planning and Development. He retired in 1984.
Upon his death in 2000, Andrews' family established the Andy and Helen Andrews Memorial Award for students who demonstrate both athletic and academic achievement.
Materials were transferred from their office of origin to the Archives in 1983. The accession record contain conflicting information about the physical extent of these materials; however, a significant number of records must have been culled from the original accession of 3.2 meters.
Scope and content
Series consists of records created or collected by Andy Andrews during the course of his career at Douglas College. The majority of these records document the development of programming and individual courses, including those that ultimately were never finalized or offered by the College. Andrews sat on multiple committees, including the Applied Programs Divisional Management Committee, and many records in this series capture administrative activities and changes between 1970 and 1983.
Immediate source of acquisition
According to the accession record (1983), materials in this series were originally arranged alphabetically by file title. This remains largely true although some files appear to have ended up in the wrong order prior to subsequent re-numbering.
