Miscellaneous and Personal  1878-1902,  1933-1966 [series]

Miscellaneous and Personal (1878-1902 and 1933-1966; 0.7 linear feet) includes scattered business records of his father William A. Anderson, newspaper clippings and a scrapbook relating to Anderson's activities with the USPS, and files relating to Detroit neighborhood politics. After World War II, Anderson and his wife took an extended trip using inland waterways beginning in Detroit, going as far south as Florida, then back to Detroit using waterways along the eastern seaboard. This series includes his narrative account of that voyage as well as a scrapbook of photographs, postcards and clippings relating to the trip. Anderson's daughter Catherine was a member of the WAVES during World War II, and her letters with her father provide information on the role of women in the military services.
