Rev. J.W.D. Anderson was born in Kansas Territory in 1859.
He lived in Kansas continually for thirty-three years, and received his education in the public schools of that state and Baker University, the oldest collegiate institution in the state, from which university he received the degrees of A.B. and A.M.
Since graduation, he has pursued a systematic course of study in English literature, under the direction of the faculty of the Allegheny College, Meadville, PA., for which he received the degree of Ph.D.
In May, 1892, he was transferred from the South Kansas Conference of the M.E. church to the Black Hills mission conference of the same church and was stationed at Hot Springs, S. Dakota. After having served that charge for sixteen months, he was appointed associate editor of the Omaha Christian Advocate, in which work he was engaged until his death, March 21, 1894.
Rev. Anderson was considered the most popular preacher in the Black Hills mission conference, and was the author of the popular lecturers; he was called (at the last annual conference of his conference, held at Spearfish, S. Dakota. Last fall) the silver tongued orator of the Black Hills.
Thus, the brightest, most intellectual, those on the road to success, honor, and fame, even in the prime of life are called to cross the river of death, with the aged, infirm and ignorant; so it is well for us in all conditions of life, at all times and under all
circumstances to be ready to cross the “river of death,” which is “only a little brook”, to the faithful Christian.
