    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: According to Grainger (1992), he lived in Alaska from his arrival in 1897 until his death. Between about 1909 and 1914 he operated as Andrews & Evans. Andrews was the official photographer for the major Alaskan shipping and rail lines. His importance as a photographer of the Klondike gold rush is owed to his photographing famous stampeders no doubt after the rush had ended. His home and business in Douglas, including his negatives, were destroyed by fire. In addition to Douglas, he was reputed to have worked in many other Alaska towns except Nome.
