Biography

Andrew Drew was the son of a St. Louis banking millionaire who, together with [Al Lambert], set up the Aero Club of St. Louis in 1877. Drew was a member of the St. Louis Amateur Athletic Association and the Missouri Athletic Club, and worked for a St. Louis newspaper, despite his wealth.

A big proponent of the early years of aviation, Andrew Drew was a pupil of Orville Wright, studying aviation with him in Dayton, Ohio. Drew became director of the Cicero Field in Chicago and later opened his own aviation school in San Antonio, Texas. He left Texas to go to Mexico and cover the Huerta Revolution for his paper. In June 1913 Drew was trying out a new biplane in Lima, Ohio, when it went out of control, and he crashed to his death in a nearby town.
