|Leonard E. Anderson
Born 2 January 1887
|Leonard E. Anderson, engaged in the practice of law at Brush, was born in Anamosa, Jones county, Iowa, on the 2d of January, 1887, a son of C. H. and Cora (Meader) Anderson, who are natives of Iowa. The father is a farmer and was postmaster at Anamosa, Iowa, for twelve years. For the past ten years, however, he has been devoting his attention to general agricultural pursuits in Florida, where he and his wife now make their home.
Leonard E. Anderson, spending his youthful days under the parental roof, mastered the branches of learning taught in the public schools of Iowa and afterward continued his studies in Lenox College at Hopkinton, Iowa, while later he became a law student in the Northwestern University of Chicago, from which he was graduated with the class of 1910. The following year he came to Colorado and entered upon the active work of his profession, since which time he has continuously engaged in practice. During the intervening period of seven years he has made steady progress as a member of the bar and has given ample proof of his ability to successfully cope with the intricate problems of jurisprudence and find ready solution therefor. He prepares his cases with great thoroughness and care and presents his cause in clear and cogent manner. He possesses a large library and with its contents has made himself largely familiar. He has his office in the Stockmen's National Bank building.
On the 1st of December, 1910, Mr. Anderson was married to Miss Eva Hunnicutt and they have one child, Charles Henry, who was born in October, 1911. Mr. Anderson is a republican in his political views and has served continuously as city attorney of Brush since taking up his abode there. He belongs to the Masonic fraternity, the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks and the Knights of Pythias and is loyal to the teachings and purposes of these organizations, which are based upon a recognition of the brotherhood of mankind and the obligations thereby imposed. Mr. Anderson has already made a creditable name and place for himself during the period of his residence in Colorado and in his career is actuated by the enterprising spirit which has been the dominant factor in the upbuilding of this section of the country.
