ANDERSON, EMIL V.: 1875-1958.

Emil V. Anderson was born in Elkhart, Ind., on Sept. 23, 1875, and lived there all of his life, except five years in early boyhood when his family lived on a farm in Elkhart County . He was educated in the Elkhart public schools. After completing the eighth grade he spent eleven years as an office worker, first with the S. D. Kimbark Company and then with the Elkhart Carriage and Harness Manufacturing Company. In 1902 and 1904 he was elected city clerk of Elkhart . When his second term expired Anderson entered the insurance business and studied law in the office of William B. Hile who later was judge of Elkhart Superior page: [12][View Page [12]] Court. He was admitted to the bar in June 1912 and began to practice law. He was a school board member, 1908-11; state representative, 1917; and city attorney, 1928-29 and 1938-42. He married Jeanette Frybarger in 1902 and his second wife was Isabel Bowen whom he married in 1912.

Anderson had a lifelong interest in history, particularly that of Elkhart County . In 1932 he began collecting historical data concerning Elkhart and wrote a series of articles about that city and county for the ELKHART TRUTH, 1948-49. The Truth Publishing Company later compiled the articles into the booklet listed below which has become standard history. He died on Nov. 28, 1958.
