Location of Other Archival Materials
A few items contained in Series I - James D. Andrews Series may also be of interest to the researcher. James D. Andrews occasionally used stray bits of paper such as menus, form letters, and other items as note paper. This habit results in the documentation of several places of business or individuals that might otherwise remain obscure. Descriptions of those items can be found in the finding aid to Series I, in the Contents Index, Section VII - Miscellaneous Items.
Biographical or Historical Data
James D. Andrews was born in September 1857 in Tennessee. He married Lula Adaline Maxwell around 1883. Together they had a daughter, Josephine (the future Mrs. Gillespie Sykes); and three sons, all of whom served in the military: Frank Maxwell Andrews; James D. Andrews, Jr.; and William Valery Andrews. James D. Andrews, Sr. was business manager of the Nashville Banner newspaper from 1883 to 1901 and was a real estate agent in Nashville, Tenn. in the early 1900s. He was a vocal advocate for aviation in the city, so much so that some citizens even proposed that the new Nashville airport, opened in 1936, be named in his honor. He represented at least four property owners (William O. Harris; Rychen Brothers dairy; Flora Hammer Bean; and A. A. Buckingham) in the sale of land to the City for the future airport. James D. Andrews died on March 4, 1937 at his home in Warner Place, in Belle Meade, Tenn., and was buried at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Nashville, Tenn.
