Havelock H. Anderson
Havelock H. Anderson

Havelock H. Anderson was born in Hanover County, Virginia, March 14, 1858.  His boyhood days were spent on a farm, and his education received at a private school on the Anderson plantation.  After attaining manhood, he entered the mercantile business in Norfolk, and later went into the real estate and insurance business in Charlottesville.  In 1877 he came to Kansas City, and soon became identified with the old Merchants' Exchange, holding the position of chief clerk to Ryerson Richie, its founder.  His next position was that of traveling salesman for Peet Bros., and from there he went to the Barber Asphalt Company.  He remained with the paving people until 1897, and then accepted the office of Jury Commissioner, filling it in a manner to give nothing but satisfaction.

     For some time interested with the Kansas City Transfer Company, in 1900 Captain Anderson decided to give all his time to it.  He is now secretary and manager of that large concern, and has done much to increase its operations.

     Captain Anderson married Miss Phoebe Brent, of Lexington, Ky., in 1891, and they have one boy four years old.  A member of the Commercial club, few men have given more time to public movements than Captain Anderson.
