This is the first entry in a now-and-then series of posts on people who have significantly altered or elaborated the physical or social character of Davis. Such people can be thought of as “major shapers.” Of course, virtually everyone associated with Davis has shaped it to some degree. Even so, some few people have had very large and wide impacts. Such people are the focus here.
This post is on Gordon Anderson, who died in 1937 at age 61. The post consists of his obituary published in the Davis Enterprise on August 27, 1937 and a photo of Bernard Rogers and him posed in their general merchandise store circa 1915. (Anderson is on the right.)
