Andrews’s primary specialty was the study of the properties of matter at extremely low temperatures. He was also a leader in the construction of a superconducting bolometer, a device which measures heat with infra-red rays. In addition to his research, Andrews was remembered for revitalizing the freshman chemistry program in 1958.
Andrews married his first wife, Josephine Adair Veeder in 1939; they had one son, Donald Hatch Andrews, Jr., but divorced in 1950. After his divorce, Andrews married the former Elizabeth Howland. He died on June 3, 1973, and was survived by his wife, son and two grandsons.
