Andrews, Albert George
[ca. 1922 - 1935]
Albert Andrews was born in England in 1881. He trained as a teacher and taught for seven years at Eton College and Harrow-on-the-Hill. Andrews moved to Canada in 1910, acquiring land in the Sedgewick area where he taught and farmed. Andrews ran as a UFA candidate in the 1922 by-election in the Sedgewick electoral district that was vacated by former Premier Charles Stewart. Andrews was acclaimed as no other candidates came forward. He won the seat in both the 1926 and 1930 elections, but lost it in the 1935 election to Social Credit candidate Albert Fee. In 1942, Andrews became the Secretary of the Alberta School Trustees' Association, a position he held until his retirement in 1956.
