Annie Dale Biddle Andrews (December 13, 1885 - April 14, 1940), born in Hanford, California to Samuel E. Biddle and A. A. Biddle, was the first woman to earn a Ph. D. in mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley.
In 1911, she wrote her thesis, Constructive theory of the unicursal plane quartic by synthetic methods, under her maiden name, Annie Dale Biddle; it was published by the university in 1912. Her advisors were Derrick Norman Lehmer and Mellen Haskell. She was a math instructor at the University of Washington from 1911 to 1912, after which she married Wilhelm Samuel Andrews. She worked as a math instructor at the University of California between 1915 and 1932 and published a paper in the Journal of the American Mathematical Society around 1933.
