Arthur Irving Andrews was born in Providence, Rhode Island, and attended university at Brown University, University of Madison, Wisconsin, and received his PhD. from Harvard. He came to Tufts in 1911 after teaching at Simmons College (1906-1909) and Harvard (1906-1912). He was a student of Archibald Cary Coolidge and helped to disseminate Coolidge's ideas about the teaching of history in America. Like Coolidge, Andrews promoted the study of previously ignored regions, such as Eastern Europe and East Asia, and emphasized international travel and international study. He taught pioneering courses in Russian and Eastern European history; Far Eastern history and culture; international law and diplomacy; modern European history and government. He also taught courses on United States political institutions and the United States as a "world power."
