Bio:

Andrew Crowther Hurley was born in Melbourne, Australia, on 11 July 1926 and received his early education at Melbourne Church of England Grammar School. He graduated from the University of Melbourne with high honors in mathematics and natural philosophy and, in 1949, was awarded his M.A. with first class honors in the school of mathematics for his thesis “The Irreducible Crystal Classes in Four Dimensions,” his supervisor being Dr. Hans Schwerdtfeger. From 1950–1952 he was a member of Trinity College, Cambridge, and was awarded a Ph.D. for his research in theoretical chemistry under Sir John Lennard-Jones. In 1953 he returned to Melbourne and joined what was to become the Division of Chemical Physics of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO). The award of a fellowship by Trinity College enabled him to spend two more years, 1954–1956, in the Theoretical Chemistry Department of the University of Cambridge, and this was followed by a year with Professor J.C. Slater's solid state and molecular theory group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1957 Andrew again returned to the Division of Chemical Physics in Melbourne, where he has remained, except for the academic year 1962–1963, when he was Visiting Professor in Theoretical Chemistry at Iowa State University.
