 Donald Kenneth Anderson Official War Artist (1920-2009)

 

Abstract:

In the early 1980s, Hugh Halliday, a former Curator of War Art at the Canadian War Museum, wrote an extensive account on Donald Anderson’s wartime career. It was based on research he uncovered following correspondence and conversations with the artist, whom he had recently located. The article was never published and exists in typewritten and hand-edited form in the Canadian War Museum’s (CWM) artist file for Anderson.1 The edits appear to be in response to Anderson’s own comments on the piece. This document forms the substance of this obituary for Canada’s last surviving Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) official Second World War artist.
