  • Notes 
    • President of Penn College, Oskaloosa, Iowa
    • (Research):!V II, page 190, Obit:--Dr. B F Andrews died on June 13 at Evanston IL aged ninety-two. He had lived in Evanston for forty three years, practicing in the Chicago and Evanston communities from 1908 until his retirement.
      He was born of staunch Quaker parents, Benjamin Crew and Mary Bruff Andrews, in Pleasant Plain IA. He did his undergraduate work at William Penn College at Oakaloosa and the University of Iowa and was awarded his medical degree in 1894 from the Illinois College of physicians and Surgeons.
      Deeply concerned for the welfare of less privileged people, Dr. Andrews served as a medical missionary in Mexico from 1900 to 1907 and later participated in the reorganizing of Happy Grove School, a Friends secondary school at Hector's River, Jamaica. In these efforts particularly, he was ably assisted by his devoted wife, Bertha Hadley Andrews, who preceded him in death by eleven years.
      During the years following his active medical practice, Dr. Andrews was concerned in the field of education. He served on the Board of Trustees of William Penn College for many years and for a period as its chairman. He faithfully followed the growth of Earlham College, contributing the first thousand collars to the proposed Meetinghouse of the campus in memory of his wife. He was a member and elder of Evanston Friends Meeting from its beginning.
      Surviving are three daughters, Mabel Morgan, Evanston, Frances E Andrews, Washington D C, and Helen Comfort, Evanston; a son Milton H Andrews of Round Lake IL; five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
