Originally from England, Alan R. Andrews was a professor of theatre at Dalhousie. He attended King Henry VII School and King Edward VI School before going to Leeds University where he obtained a B.A. and an M.A., as well as a Diploma of Education. Andrews then completed a PhD at Illinois.

Andrews joined Dalhousie’s English Department in 1966 but moved to the Theatre Department in 1969. He was promoted to professor in 1981 and remained with the department until his retirement in June 2001. Andrews was known for his interest in Bernard Shaw at Dalhousie. He also directed approximately fifteen dramatic productions; served on a number of committees; was chairman of the department (1968-1971); served as editor of the Dalhousie Review (1985-1995); and was secretary to the Faculty of Arts and Sciences in the early 1980s. Beyond Dalhousie, Andrews was involved with Neptune Theatre; was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts; and served as president of CAUT (Canadian Association of University Teachers) from 1992 thru 1994.
