Anderson, Alfred a member of the firm of Mitbauer & Anderson, who are operating the Merrill Marble and Granite Works at Merrill, was born at Wausau, Wis., July 28, 1891, son of Gustav and Alma ANDERSON. The parents, who were natives of Sweden, settled at Wausau, after coming to this country and there reared their family of 11 children, ten of whom are now living, namely: Anna, wife of John KNUTSON of Wausau; Hilma, wife of John CLARK of Ashland; Ella, wife of Wallace GROVER of Wausau; Alexander and Alfred of Merrill; Algot of Milwaukee; Harold of Wausau; Olga of Milwaukee; and Walter and Evan, who are at home. The other child died in infancy. Alfred ANDERSON attended school at Wausau and subsequently worked as a lumber grader in sawmills there for a time. He then took up stone cutting and finishing, serving his apprenticeship with Anderson Bros. & Johnson of Wausau. When the United States entered the World War he enlisted in the navy; being the first to enlist from Marathon County and serving until the close of the war. He trained at Great Lakes, attained the rank of gunner's mate, and had charge of training recruits at the Great Lake Navel Station. After receiving an honorable discharge he returned to Wausau and again followed the monument business there until 1921, when he came to Merrill and formed a partnership with Henry J. MITBAUER for the purchase and operation of the Merrill Marble and Granite Works, which enterprise was met with gratifying success. Mr. ANDERSON is an expert granite worker and spends part of his time in this work, besides traveling for the firm. He is a member of the Masons' and Eagles' lodges and stands very high in the community.
