Alan R. Andrews is an emeritus professor at Dalhousie University. Born in England in 1935, he was educated at King Henry VII and King Edward VI schools before earning his BA, MA and a Diploma of Education from Leeds University. He later obtained his PhD at the University of Illinois.
Andrews was appointed to Dalhousie's English department in 1966, but moved to the theatre department in 1969 and was promoted to full professor in 1981. His scholarly interests included George Bernard Shaw, Granville Barker and St. John Hankin, about whom he wrote and lectured frequently, including at the Shaw Festival in Ontario.

He had close ties with Neptune Theatre, was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and served as President of the Canadian Association of University Teachers from 1992-1994. Alan Andrews retired from Dalhousie in June 2001.
