Biography/HistoryDavid Anderson was born March 3, 1883 in Sillerud, Sweden and studied photography there and in Germany. In March 1903 he immigrated to the United States, apparently coming to the Red River Valley. He was a photographer in Hawley, Minnesota and Cooperstown, Aneta, Hillsboro, and Mayville, N.D before coming to Fargo. Mr. Anderson operated his studio at North Dakota Agricultural College in Morrill Hall. The college granted him office space in exchange for campus photographic work. Mr. Anderson was a member of the Professional Photographers of America, serving on its council. He also won a number of medals for excellence in photography. Sometime after 1945 he moved from Fargo. He lived in Maryland for a time before moving to Oregon. He died December 14, 1962 in Medford, Oregon.
