Gus Anderson was born shortly after his parents arrived in Maryborough, Queensland, from Scotland. He spent almost all of his life farming in the Howard and Childers districts of Queensland, but also did some work in the coal mines. In 1908 Anderson married Elizabeth Hamilton, a Howard resident. He loved the bush and nature, and dedicated his life to his wife, his family and to helping others.
Anderson is the father of Edith M. Eardley (q.v.).
