Biographical history

Francis Anderson obtained a Diploma in Agriculture from the University of Manitoba in 1939. In 1947, he obtained a Veterans Loan and started farming. Because he was concerned with chemicalization in agriculture, he phased out the use of chemicals in 1967/1968. He lived in Lowe Farm, Manitoba with his wife Rebecca and his children.

Custodial history

The fonds was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Francis Anderson in 1995.
