Harold E. Andrews Award
Harold E. Andrews Award in Recognition of Service to the Geosciences Department
The Harold E. Andrews Award in Recognition of Service to the Geosciences Department celebrates the extraordinary dedication of Harold Andrews, Professor of Geosciences at Wellesley College from 1971-2006. Winner of the Pinanski Teaching Prize from the College, Harold was cited at the time:
“Harold Andrews, Professor of Geosciences, is the model liberal arts science professor, blending ancient Chinese art, Shakespeare, and global plate tectonics to instill in his students an enduring curiosity about the natural world. His students say they major and minor not in geology or geosciences, but in “Harold.”
Students especially admire Professor Andrews’s ability to make science accessible without making it simple. As one nominator explained, he “provides inspiration along with creatively-integrated facts and figures.” His facility for finding common ground with almost anyone allows him to craft his science into forms that engage -- and educate -- at multiple levels."
This award honors a Senior for outstanding service to the work of the Geosciences Department."
