Charles H. Anderson, managing partner of the G. H. Anderson Furniture Company, of Hutchinson, Kan., is one of the progressive business men who have so materially assisted in placing the Salt City in the van of progress and made it the leading wholesale and retail center of Kansas. He is a Missourian by birth, born near Joplin, March 26, 1870. During boyhood Mr. Anderson remained on a farm near Chillicothe, Mo., where he received a good education in the public schools. Believing that the Sunflower State offered the best advantages to an enterprising man, he located at Syracuse, Kan., in 1905, and there engaged in the real estate business, until 1909. At that time he came to Hutchinson, as president and manager of the Hutchinson Carpet Company. For two years he devoted his time and energy to conducting and building up the business of this concern. On Oct. 23, 1911, he severed his business relations with the company and bought a half-interest in the G. H. Anderson Furniture Company, becoming the active manager of it, although G. H. Anderson retained the other half-interest. Although such a short time has passed since entering upon his new duties Mr. Anderson is showing marked ability in running the furniture house, which has a rapidly increasing business under his able management.

On March 1, 1894, Mr. Anderson married Olive Millay, of Bogard, Mo., and they have three children—George C., Jessie Fay, and Ralph M.

During his business career Mr. Anderson has acquired a reputation for integrity, fair dealing, and progress, which may well be the envy of the average merchant. While the two members of the firm of G. H. Anderson Furniture Company are not related, except in business, the name Anderson, in Hutchinson and vicinity, means furniture of quality, class, and a square deal.
