Graeme F. Anderson (born 6 April 1939) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with Carlton in the Victorian Football League (VFL) during the 1960s.

Anderson is the son of Carlton premiership winning player Frank Anderson.[1] Like his father, Anderson played as a defender, mostly on the half back flanks or at full-back.

He helped Carlton reach the 1962 VFL Grand Final by taking two important marks late in the preliminary final, which they won by just five points.[2] In the Grand Final he played as a half back flanker and finished on the losing team.[3]

After playing eight games in the 1968 home and away season, Anderson finished the year in the reserves and missed out on a Carlton premiership, secured with a grand final win over Essendon.[3]
