Anderson, William A. (1861–1918)

William Anderson, n.d.

William Anderson, n.d.

from Pastoral Review, 16 March 1918

The sudden death last month of Mr. William A. Anderson at "Clovelly," Neutral Bay, Sydney, removed one of the best known and respected figures in Sydney business and pastoral circles.

Born in Victoria in 1861, Mr. Anderson in 1875 joined the firm of White, Alford and Co., Melbourne, agents for the New Zealand & Australian Land Company, Edinburgh. Upon White, Alford's business being absorbed by Dennys, Lascelles, Austin and Co., Melbourne, Mr. Anderson became office manager, and in 1908, when the New Zealand and Australian Land Company established its own office in Sydney, he took charge of it. Three sons have served in the war. One was killed at Bullecourt, another was recently wounded in France at Passchendaele, and the third is now a sergeant in charge of commissary at Heytesbury Camp, Wiltshire.
