Clarence R Anderson is a member of the mercantile firm of Anderson brothers at Ogden. They follow progressive methods, re energetic and in their close application, keen business sagacity and unfaltering industry is found the secret of their growing success. Clarence R Anderson was born in Ogden, August 5, 1891, and is, therefore, yet a young man, but the position to which he has attained is one which would be creditable to a man of twice his years. His parents, Charles and Sarah (Carlson) Anderson, were natives of Sweden. Crossing the Atlantic to the new world Charles Anderson established his home in Illinois in the 60ís but after remaining there for a brief period came to Boone county, where he purchased a tract of land and improved a good farm in Marcy township. He continued its cultivation year after year with gratifying success in the production of the cereals best adapted to soil and climate. His methods were at once practical and progressive and resulted in good crops, for which he found a ready sale. He was thus engaged until 1904, when he retired and removed to Ogden, where he spent his remaining days in the enjoyment of a well earned and well merited rest. His death occurred September 17, 1912, while his wife survived him only until February 26, 1913.
Clarence R Anderson, reared in Ogden, pursued his education in its public schools and when his text books were put aside he secured a clerkship in a general store, owned by his brother. In the summer of 1913, they erected a modern two story business block and are now engaged successfully in general merchandising under the firm style of Anderson Brothers. They carry a large and carefully selected line of goods, and their stock is attractive both in quality and price. They make earnest effort to please their patrons, are prompt, faithful and at all times thoroughly reliable and honorable in their dealing. Clarence R Anderson is also a stockholder I the Ogden State Bank and is recognized as one of the rising young business men of the city. His political views accord with the principles of the progressive party, and he is not afraid to announce his opinions, yet is never bitterly aggressive. His religious faith is indicated by his membership in the Swedish Mission. Well known in Boone, he has many sterling traits of character, that have gained from him high personal regard.
