About George Andrews Exhibit
Their Maya Story: George and Gerrie Andrews tells the story of two lives dedicated to documenting Maya architecture and celebrates the Andrews' contribution to Maya studies—and to the Alexander Architectural Archive.
Amanda Keys completed this online exhibit in May 2011 as part of her Professional Experience Project for the Master of Science in Information Studies degree at the University of Texas School of Information. In addition to this exhibition, the project included processing of the Andrews' papers and photographic materials, which are housed at the Alexander Architectural Archive of the UT Libraries Architecture and Planning Library.

Many thanks to Steven Williams of UT Libraries Technology Integration Services, whose expertise in programming supported the project's technical aspects, and to art history Ph.D. student Meghan Rubenstein, whose contributions as a subject specialist helped determine the exhibition's structure. Gratitude also is due to the project field supervisors, Beth Dodd and Donna Coates, and the faculty supervisor, Dr. Megan Winget, for their advice and support.
The header graphic for this exhibition was created from a photograph of the façade of Kabah's Structure 2C6 (Codz Poop), Yucatán, Mexico. The original image is included in the site slides in the Andrews papers.
