Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Andrew, LL.D. (1774-13 June 1833), was the principal of the East India Company's Military Seminary at Addiscombe, Surrey. Andrew was from Scotland, and received his education at Aberdeen. He established a private academy at Addiscombe, which acquired so high a reputation that the East India Company made choice of it for the education of their engineer and artillery pupils, when they decided to educate them separately from the king's cadets. In 1809 they purchased the mansion house of Addiscombe, Andrew being appointed headmaster and Professor of Mathematics. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in March, 1821.show more
