If one searches Google for "edinburgh theses", the 2nd item retrieved
will permit a connection with the catalog of the U. of Edinburgh's
library.  "Edinburgh University theses presented since 1985 are listed
in the Library's Catalogue, and can be searched for by author, title or
keyword".  However, I found nothing under Andrew or Aaron Drew, Drewe,
Drewes, or Drews.

There is a print publication called "Index to Theses with
AbstractsAccepted for Higher Degrees by the Universities of Great
Britian and Ireland"  This appears 6 times a year.  I don't see Drew,
&c. in the indexes to the issues of 2000 or 2001.  It claims to be
searchable on line, at the address ""  Subscribers to the
print version are said to be eligible for a password.  Bobst is a
subscriber, but I doubt that we have ever applied for a password.
Otherwise, one may "sample" one year, for free, at that address, but
the sample year is evidently from the mid-1990s.
