Andy died July 2, 2021. 

He attended Deerfield Academy and St. Albans School. He majored in history, graduating magna cum laudewith election to Phi Beta Kappa. He served as vice president of Dial Lodge, chaired the Whig Party and the Democratic Club of Princeton, was president of the Princeton Senate and a varsity debater.

Andy studied political science and economics at New College, Oxford, for a year before service in the Army. At the University of Virginia Law School he was editor in chief of the law review and graduated first in his class. 

He was born to a family that advocated forward-thinking policies in the 1940s and 1950s. His father was a liberal Democrat who fought a political machine and ran for governor and for the Senate.

In Abingdon, Va., Andy joined Penn Stuart and threw himself into extensive community and public service. After some years in law practice, Andy was elected attorney general of Virginia, serving from 1970 to 1977. His successful reorganization and modernization of the office became a model for attorneys general offices countrywide. He then, like his father, made unsuccessful runs for governor and the Senate, returning to private practice of law with the firms Dickstein Shapiro, Powell Goldstein, and Hunton & Williams.

Andy married Doris Brown in 1954. He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Penelope Farthing; and four children.
