Biography | show moreshow less
Roy Chapman Andrews (1884-1960), long associated with the American Museum of Natural History in New York, made his initial discoveries at sea, studying marine mammals as noted in this ALS. His major discoveries, however, were made in China and Mongolia in the 1920s, when his expedition discovered fossils of many previously unknown dinosaur species, including Protoceratops, Oviraptor, and the now famous Velociraptor. In 1923 it discovered the first fossil dinosaur eggs. In 1927 the Boy Scouts of America created the new category of Honorary Scout to award it to Andrews. He was President of the Explorers Club (1931-1934). In all, Andrews wrote 23 books.
