Cleric.

Born in Rathwell, Manitoba, Anderson graduated from St. John’s College and was ordained in 1937. He served many Manitoba parishes. During World War Two he was an armed forces chaplain, and he was wounded in holland when his jeep hit a land mine. He served as rector of Christ Church Cathedral in Ottawa from 1949 to 1962, then returned to Manitoba as suffragan bishop of Rupert’s Land, becoming bishop of British Columbia in 1968. He died in Victoria.
