C. Norman Andreae Jr., 75, pharmaceuticals salesman


C. Norman Andreae Jr., a retired pharmaceuticals salesman, died of cancer Thursday at his Mount Washington home. He was 75.

Born in Baltimore and raised in Roland Park, he was a 1947 graduate of St. Paul's School, where he played on the lacrosse team.

His studies at the University of Virginia were interrupted by service in the Army Medical Corps on Okinawa. Mr. Andreae later earned a bachelor's degree in psychology at Virginia, where he also played lacrosse.

He joined Parke Davis Co. in downtown Baltimore in the 1950s and retired about 20 years ago.

He was a former president of the Calvert County Historical Society and spent much of his time on his family farm on the Chesapeake Bay near Prince Frederick. In his spare time, he searched for fossils and Colonial-era artifacts. He gave permission to the Smithsonian Institution to complete an archaeological dig on his property, and the findings were later donated to the Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum in St. Leonard.

Mr. Andreae was a former trustee of Roland Park Country School and Roland Park Presbyterian Church, where services were held yesterday.

Survivors include his wife of 39 years, the former Virginia White Norris; a son, Charles N. Andreae of Alexandria, Va.; three daughters, Mary Stuart Gephart of Glen Rock, N.J., and Virginia Novak and Sally Lee McCabe, both of Baltimore; and 11 grandchildren. His first wife, the former Jean Graham Gowdy, died in 1960. A son, Michael Graham Andreae, and a daughter, Jean Graham Andreae, died in the 1950s.
