From graduate student to “Dean” in the Botany Department at Washington University and as paleobotanist at the Missouri Botanical Garden (1935–1964), Henry N. Andrews, Jr., was one of the pioneers in American coal-ball studies. His contributions and those of his students extended and expanded upper Carboniferous studies in all the major plant groups. Andrews developed a comparably productive research and training program in Devonian paleobotany at the University of Connecticut, Storrs (1964–1975). His quiet way of sharing interests is manifest, in part, by his many collaborative explorations and research projects as well as by diverse written accounts of such adventures. Much of Andrews’s broad appreciation of historical, cultural, and scientific heritage comes alive in his numerous books and popular articles. As a native New Englander, he developed intense interests and enjoyment of naturalist opportunities, from seacoast to the mountains. He and his wife, Elisabeth (Lib), have continued their writings, travel, and teaching since “retiring” to the family farm in New Hampshire. The fossil hunters, written after retirement, constitutes a benchmark treatment of paleobotanists and conveys much about the author.
