David Verner Anderson Papers
About the Collection
The collection includes photographs, 1918-1922 and undated (1952?), from Anderson's time as a student at Norwich and from a later reunion of alumni, possibly the 30th reunion of the class of 1922. An album of photographs, 1918-1922, and 1954, reprinted by the family from the original negatives in 2010 is also included. Papers in the collection date from 1939-1955, during Anderson's tenure as Vermont's auditor of accounts and also include materials on alumni meetings, scholarships, donations and endowments, which provide insight into state and Norwich affairs at the time. Also included are Anderson's reminiscences written in 1965, which reflect on his life in service to the state of Vermont (16 pp.), and an essay on friendship written in 1976, which captures his thoughts on three special friendships he developed with David B. Hollis (1900-1993), Dick Tyler (d. 1978), and Frederick M. Matthews (d. 1982) while at Norwich.
