H. Andrew (Drew) Dudley, 67, a literary consultant and former World Bank public relations official, died Feb. 11 at his home in New York City after a heart attack.
He was named director of public relations for the World Bank here in 1946. Three years later, he was appointed director of the bank's public relations in Europe, with headquarters in Paris.
Mr. Dudley left the World Bank in the 1950s to become a consultant to a number of New York publishing houses.
He was born in Hanover, N.H., and graduated from Dartmouth College in 1933, when he first came to Washington to work for the National Recovery Administration. He left government service to be consumer sales director of the Wrigley company in Chicago.
Mr. Dudley returned to Washington in the early years of World War II. He was with the Office of War Information, served with the rank of lieutenant commander in the Office of the Secretary of the Navy, and was chief of the media programming division of the Office of War Mobilization and Reconversion before joining the World Bank.
He is survived by three brothers, Charles M., of Lebanon, N.H., Robert, of Bethesda and Naples, Fla., and Bernard F., of Sharon, Vt., and a sister, Constance Casey, of Washington.
