Andrew was born in Louvain, Belgium, and joined our class from Shorewood High in Wisconsin. A music major at Princeton, he earned a master’s degree at the University of Paris-Sorbonne and a Ph.D. at Columbia.
He joined the Vassar faculty in 2007, where he taught medieval art, architecture, and pre-modern acoustics and was known for bringing the past to light in vivid and meaningful ways. Among other professional accomplishments, Andrew received a five-year grant from the Andrew Mellon Foundation for the web-based project “Mapping Gothic.” His research was featured in an Emmy-nominated PBS/Nova production, Building the Great Cathedrals, which has regularly aired nationally since 2010, and he was co-founder and a director of the U.S.-based charitable association the Friends of Notre-Dame.
Andrew is survived by his wife, Marie Tallon-Daudruy; their four sons, Ambrose, Augustin, Gabriel, and Anatole; his parents, Andrew and Mary Elizabeth; his sister, Clare, and her husband, Dan, and their children; and his brother, Barry. Our class sends its deepest sympathies to Andrew’s loved ones.
