Designation: Architect
Born: c. 1877
Died: 10 August 1942
Bio Notes: Henry McClure Anderson was born c.1877 in Edinburgh. The details of his training are not known but the 1901 Census indicates that he was working as a draughtsman in an unspecified office in Edinburgh in that year. He married Margaret P Ross some time between then and 1910. By 1925 he had emigrated to Tientsin in North China, and was practising in partnership with Edwin Cook as Cook & Anderson, their office being located at 142 Victoria Street. It was in that year that he was admitted FRIBA, apparently without the need for proposers.

Anderson died aged 65 in the British American Nursing Home in Tientsin on 10 August 1942. The Swiss consul who was in charge of British interests in Tientsin registered his death.
