Anderson was a graduate of Lake Forest College and then went on to study architecture at the University of Illinois and the Sorbonne. After serving in WW I he returned to Chicago and worked for six years in the office of Howard Van Doren Shaw. After Shaw’s death Anderson opened an office with James Ticknor and they remained partners for 20 years. Several of Shaw’s draftspersons joined their firm. Anderson is known for designing many country houses in the Lake Forest and Lake Bluff area.
He is also responsible for Lake Forest Hospital, the old First National Bank Building (now Northern Trust), Lake Forest High School, .
