Mignon Anderson (March 31, 1892 – February 25, 1983) was an American silent film actress. Her career was at its peak in the 1910s.

Career[edit]

Born in Baltimore, Anderson's parents, Hallie Howard and Frank Anderson, were also actors. In 1911 she joined Thanhouser Studios in New Rochelle, New York. She was very diminutive and a blonde.[2] Anderson starred alongside William Garwood in a number of short films including A New Cure for Divorce in 1912.

Personal life and death[edit]

Playing in Thanhouser films brought about an acquaintance with Morris Foster, also of that company.[2][3] She was married to Foster from 1915 until his death in 1966.[1]

Anderson died in Burbank, California at the age of 90.
