Harry Anderson

Mr Harry Anderson was born in Scarborough, Yorkshire on 20 October 1864, and went to the United States in his youth.

In 1912, Mr Anderson was returning to his home in New York City after a business and pleasure trip to England. He was a Wall Street stockbroker and was married to the former Flora Makley, daughter of John F. and Anna E. Makley. They lived on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The Andersons had no children. Mrs Anderson did not make the trip with her husband and had remained in New York.

Mr Anderson boarded the Titanic in Southampton (ticket number 19952, 26 11s) and occupied cabin E-12 . He left the Titanic in Lifeboat 3 which was one of the first boats to leave.

Back in New York, Mr Anderson was commodore of the yacht division of the New York Athletic Club. In his later years, he was a member of the Larchmont Yacht Club, the same club in which fellow survivor, Frederick Hoyt , was also a member.

Harry Anderson's wife Florence Makley Anderson died on 7 December 1937. At the time of his own death in New York on 23 November 1951, at the age of 87, he left no surviving relatives in the United States.

Harry Anderson and his wife were both buried at Woodlawn Cemetery in New York City.
