Frank Anderson

Denver, History of Colorado, BIOS: ANDERSON, Frank (published 1918)

"History of Colorado", edited by Wilbur Fisk Stone, published by The S. J. Clarke Publishing Co. (1918) Vol. II p. 395


Frank Anderson, cashier of the treasury department of the Colorado & Southern Railway Company with office in Denver, his native city, was born on the 28th of October, 1886, a son of Alexander and Margaret (Duffus) Anderson. The father was born in Forfar, Scotland, and came to the United States, when between thirty-five and forty years of age. He is still living, but his wife, who was also born in Scotland, has passed away. In their family were eight children, five of whom survive.

Frank Anderson acquired his education in the public schools of his native city and in business college, in which he was a student for two years, thus receiving thorough training which well qualified him for life's practical and responsible duties after he entered business circles. He first became connected with the Citizens Bank & Trust Company, with which he remained for two years. He then entered the employ of the Colorado & Southern Railway Company as clerk in the treasury department.

In March, 1910, Mr. Anderson was united in marriage to Miss Nellie Mae Curtiss and to them have been born two children: Mildred Marie, seven years of age, now in school; and Budd Frank, a little lad of five years. The parents are members of the Episcopal church. Mr. Anderson is a devotee of golf, greatly enjoying a turn on the links. There have been no spectacular phases in his life. He has perseveringly given his attention to business and his close application and energy have been the salient factors in winning for him his present responsible position.
