Author notes provided by Syndetics

Robert J. Andrews (1937#150;2013) was a teacher and administrator in Ontario public schools for thirty-four years. Over the next twenty years, he and his wife, with Amherst's journals in hand, traveled to every place in North America that Amherst mentioned. In addition, they visited numerous archives in seeking out all of Amherst's correspondence from 1757 through 1763, which Andrews cross-referenced to journal entries. He used this information to compile the most comprehensive study of Amherst's role in the Seven Years' War to date.
