Table of contents What's This?
The A. Piatt Andrew papers provide a record of the life and work of a prominent American who achieved distinction in a number of fields in the first part of the 20th century. Andrew taught economics at Harvard before being appointed to government office, first as Director of the United States Mint and then as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury. Leaving the Treasury Department, he then acted on his own initiative as the founder and director of the American Field Service, a volunteer ambulance corps that operated with the French army on the battlefields of Europe during World War I. Following service in the United States Army, Andrew was elected to Congress in 1921 and remained a representative from Massachusetts until his death in 1936. All phases of his career in public service are documented in the papers.
