He has been with the museum since 1999 where their state-of-the-art, 55,000 square-foot facility, has been open since 2005. The building has three levels and features galleries and storage facilities where they honor and perpetuate the legacy of the rich industrial heritage of the South Bend area and the Studebaker marque. He also serves as President of the Society of Automotive Historians. Andy grew up in a family of Studebaker owners, and drives a 1964 Studebaker Daytona Hardtop. Andrew previously worked at the Sheboygan County Historical Society and Wade House State Historic Site.
