Cameron Anderson (May 1857 – March 23, 1926) was a politician in Alberta, Canada and a municipal councillor in Edmonton.

Biography[edit]

Anderson came to Edmonton prior to 1901 from North Dakota.[1] Anderson was a long-time Edmonton resident and a building contractor. In the 1906 municipal election he was elected to a two year term on Edmonton City Council as an alderman, placing fourth of twelve candidates. He sought re-election in the 1908 election, but finished seventh of thirteen candidates in an election in which there were only six vacancies. He did not seek political office thereafter.

Anderson died at noon on March 23, 1926 after contacting pneumonia. He was survived by his wife, Merran, four daughters and a son, and William Anderson, his brother.[1]
