Biographical history

William Smith Anderson (1878-1929), sometimes know as 'Jock' Anderson, was born in Kilsyth. A few years later his family moved to Kirkintilloch. On leaving school he was apprenticed to a firm of ironfounders, Messrs. Cameron and Robertson of Kirkintilloch, eventually becoming their commercial traveller. Much of his business was in England and after marrying Daisy McGlashan in September 1909 the family moved to Hexham, Northumberland.
