Summary
  • The Anderson photograph collection, housed in the L. Tom Perry Special Collections, includes approximately 16,000 glass plate negatives
  • Anderson often recorded the town where the photographs were taken, as well as the name of the individual or family who contracted for the portraits. Anderson did not identify each individual in his photographs, consequently the contractor's name is the family name associated with the photographs. You will find hundreds of family names, and scores of Utah communities found in this collection. The photographs, taken between 1879-1927, span most of his career
Biographical or historical data
George Edward Anderson, Ed as he was called, was born 28 October 1860 in Salt Lake City, and apprenticed early in his teen-age years to renowned photographer, Charles R. Savage. As early as 1877, Anderson established his own studio in Salt Lake City, with his brothers, Stanley and Adam. He subsequently established a studio in Manti, Utah, in 1886 and in the fall of 1888 he moved to Springville, Utah, with his bride, Olive Lowry, where he began to operate a more permanent studio. He is perhaps best known for his traveling tent studios, where he would set up a temporary studio in small towns throughout central, eastern, and southern Utah and record the lives of the inhabitants. Known primarily as a portrait photographer, he is also known among many members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) for his 1907 photographs of church history sites, which he photographed for an entire year while traveling across the country to begin his mission for the LDS Church in England. George Edward Anderson died on 9 May 1928 in Springville, Utah, in relative obscurity and only recently has his contribution to the recording of his times been re-discovered.
