Thomas Andrews, Jr. (1873 – 1912)
Thomas Andrews, nephew of Lord Pirrie, joined Harland & Wolff as a premium apprentice in 1889 and eventually rose to the position of general manager of the yard and the head of the drawing offices in July 1910. Thomas Andrews’ involvement in the design of Olympic and Titanic was from 1910 onwards and in April 1912 he represented the company as part of the Harland & Wolff Guarantee Group on board Titanic for her maiden voyage.
Had Andrews survived the disaster he would most certainly have followed in his uncle’s footsteps and become chairman of Harland & Wolff.
