Henry Herbert Andrew ( -1903)

1903 Obituary [1]

HENRY HERBERT ANDREW died suddenly in New York on October 13, 1903. He was head of the well-known Toledo Steelworks, Sheffield, and his death came as a great shock to Sheffield. Since 1895, when he filled the office of Master Cutler, he took no part in public affairs.

The Toledo Steelworks, which were established some fifty years ago by his father, came under his management upon the retirement of his father in 1883. For a time he had the assistance of his brother, who died as long ago as 1889. He was a prominent freemason and a great traveller, and crossed the Atlantic something like sixty times.

He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1885.
