A. Piatt Andrew

A. Piatt Andrew.  His family was from Indiana.  He was schooled at Lawrenceville, at Princeton and at Harvard University where he then taught economics.  He played a key role in the development of the Federal Reserve through his participation in the Aldrich Commission.  In 1915, he organized the groups of volunteer ambulance drivers detached from the American Ambulance of Paris, by having them integrated into the French Army Ambulance Service--- thus marking the beginning of what was to become the American Field Service.  After the War, he served in Congress.
