1924 – 1989
Who was Kevin Andrews?
Kevin Andrews was a philhellene, writer and archaeologist. He was born in Peking, China; second son of Yvette Borup, wife of Roy Chapman Andrews, the American explorer, who however was probably not Kevin's father. Born a U.S. citizen, he became a citizen of Greece in 1975. He was schooled in England at Stowe, where he learned classical Greek. He served for three years in World War II as a private in the US Army seeing action in Italy. After graduating from Harvard in 1947 he entered for a travelling fellowship in Athens, and his future life in Greece was decided by chance when he was successful; as he said "the award ... was fortuitous since no one else applied for it, and is relevant only as the reason why I went to Greece in the first place.".
