Memorable Manitobans: Jeffrey William Anderson (c1929-2014)

Journalist, music critic.

Son of composer W. H. Anderson and Marcelle Anderson, he began a career in journalism as a music critic at the Winnipeg Free Press in the late 1950s. From there, he became a music producer at the CBC, eventually being appointed head of its London (England) bureau during the late 1960s and early 1970s. He later taught journalism at the University of Western Ontario. Following retirement, he returned to Manitoba and became active with the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra. He died at Winnipeg on 18 March 2014.
