Biographical history

Allan James Anderson was born in Brockville, Ontario in 1907. He attended Bishop's University and was granted his B.A. (in Theology) in 1932. He then moved to the Diocese of Ontario where he was ordained as Deacon in the same year, and then as priest in 1933. Except for a wartime stint in the army's Chaplaincy Service, he served the whole of his career in this Diocese as Curate of St. George's Cathedral, as parish priest, as prison chaplain and as secretary of Synod. He was made an Archdeacon in 1969. In 1970 he took a short leave to study archival work at Carleton University's summer school. He then spent considerable time organizing and cataloguing the Diocesan collection. He died in Kingston in 1990.
