Anderson, Frederick Rae (1885-1961)

Frederick Rae Anderson was a lawyer. He lived at 2046 Pendrell Street in 1917 and 1918.

He was born on November 1, 1885 (or November 3, 1883) in New Brunswick. His father was Job S. Anderson, who was a blacksmith and farmer. His mother was Emma R. Harris.

He went to Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick. He first came to British Columbia in 1903 to work on the railway survey crews who were locating the Crow’s Nest Pass Route.

Frederick married Mabel Ellen Taylor, probably in 1912. She was born on April 25, 1886, on her father’s sailing vessel while it was en route between Vancouver and Melbourne, Australia. Her father was George Chipman Taylor (1847-1923); her mother was Jane Thompson (1860-1943). From 1905 to 1912, she was a school teacher in several places in British Columbia, including Ucluelet, Smithers, Kamloops and Cranbrook.

Frederick began his law articles with Finley Robert McDonald Russell in June 1913; he was called to the British Columbia Bar in 1916.

Frederick worked on many matters involving the Vancouver Sun, which was Finley Russell’s client. Frederick continued to work with the Sun even after he left the Russell firm in 1929. He was also a director of Sun Publishing from 1918 to 1914. He retired in 1944.

Frederick died in Vancouver on March 12, 1961.

Mabel died in Vancouver on October 13, 1987.

During the Second World War, he joined the Canadian Army, where he became a lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Engineers, building a series of bridges for the Allies to use during the war. He was mentioned in military despatches for his efforts.

After the war, he moved to California, where he became an oil company geologist. In 1962, he became a naturalized United States citizen. In the 1960s, he became a teacher at Napa Valley College.

On April 6, 1974, in Napa, California, he married Jean D. Schroeder. She was born about 1939.
