Middle College, Beloit WI
He graduated from the college in 1906 with a major in English. Among other courses he took at Beloit College were archaeology and evolution, unusual subjects for the day, which were taught in conjunction with the school’s Logan Museum of Anthropology (founded in 1893).
The June 1911 issue of “The Beloit Alumnus” (Vol. 2, no. 3, p.16) contained the following note about RCA, who was in the Beloit College graduating class of 1906.
“1906. Roy C. Andrews, who has won fame for his great discoveries in whale research, is booked for another fine expedition next fall, if plans do not fail. He expects to leave New York about Nov. 1, make a trip to Korea, where he will spend the winter months, and then go north to Siberia, and the coast of Norway.
He has had full charge of the department of mammals in the American Museum of Natural History during the absence of the Director, Dr. Allen, and if the latter, who has not been very well, is able to carry on the work at the museum, Mr. Andrews will make the trip as planned.
The appointment of Dr. Lucas as director of the museum in New York may mean better things still for the former Beloit boy, as the doctor wanted Mr. Andrews to go to the Brooklyn Museum with him when he decided on entering the New York institution.
Plans for a $2,500,000 building for his department, as outlined by Mr. Andrews, have practically been accepted by those in charge of the museum and it will probably be built in another year.”
