Mr. Anderson has made his home in Berkeley for the past 40 years and for a number of years had been retired. Born in Oregon, he was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Marion Anderson, pioneers who crossed the plains. After attending Willamette University, Mr. Anderson came to California and graduated from Stanford University with the class of 1895 (1905?). He later was awarded his Master's degree from the University of California and his Ph.D. from Stanford. He was a member of the Sigma Xi Honor Fraternity.
