Wealthy Engineer Eloped
With Princess When Stu
dent at Yale.
By the Associated Press.
FAIR HAVEN, N. J., June 12. 1
Poison* apparently taken by accident, J
today was declared officially to have :
caused the death of Donald Shields
Andrews wealthy chemical engineer, j
who in 1915, when a student at Yale, |
eloped with a princess.
His partner in the sensational elope
ment, Mrs. Alma V. Hayne, ajso known j
as the Princess Vetsera of Austria,
took her life by drinking poison at the
•econd victory ball in London in 1919.
Andrews was found dead Tuesday in
the 5200.000 laboratory he built on
the banks of the Shrewsbury River
•nd in which he recently spent much
time endeavoring to make precious
•tones synthetically.
Glass Is Found by Body.
He had gone to the laboratory at
4 am., with John Ross, a friend and
associate, and his body was discovered
by the latter upon his return to the i
laboratory after a brief absence.
Chief of Police Herdon said that a
drinking glass partly filled with water j
was on the floor beside the body. A
container of poison was on the table
and in the waste basket was another
drinking glass that Dr. Harvey W.
Hartman, Monmouth County physician.;
said contained possibly traces of poison, j
Dr. Hartman issued a certificate of,
accidental death after an autopsy had
been performed which disclosed traces !
of poison. Prosecutor Jonas Tumen
•aid that although the investigation
•till was open, he was convinced death
was accidental. He said Andrews had
no business or domestic troubles, but
' recently had been under the care of j
• physician for a nervous trouble.
Father Was Hanna Associate.
He was the son of Matthew Andrews
Os Cleveland, a business associate of
Marcus A. Hanna. At the time of his
elopement with Mrs. Hayne, he was
said to have eluded private detectives
employed by his family to prevent the .
marriage. He and Mrs. Hayne, how- j
ever, were married in Mamaroneck, N. i
Y„ April 24, 1915.
She said she was the natural daugh- i
ter of Crown Prince Rudolph of Austria
•nd the Baroness Marie Vetsera who
were found dead together in a hunt
ing lodge in 1889. Prior to her mar
riage with Andrews, she had been di- 1
vorced from a captain of the British i
Flying Corps. After their marriage, I
Andrews and his bride sailed for Eu- j
rope, but he returned alone a month
later and they later were divorced.
Andrews later married Hilah Reeder
»nd they lived on an estate at Rum
ion, near here.
