Carl E. Andrews, M.D. ’44, retired and living in Port St. Lucie, Fla., is now a “gentleman farmer” with 103 orange and grapefruit trees. He handles the farm completely by himself, including the cultivation, pruning and picking in early spring. After harvesting his crop, he travels through the neighborhood on his bicycle distributing bags of complimentary fruit. Andrews’ residence is in a neighborhood built around a small airstrip. The development was designed for individuals who own small planes, and each backyard has an aircraft taxi road leading to the airstrip. Although robust for his years, Andrews gave up his plane and license several years ago because of his age.
