Dr. J. Andeorson A
R. JAMES ANDERSON,
one of the founders of
the Fort Worth Medical
College, now merged
with Texas Christian
University, is a native
of Londonderry and educated at the
famous University of Edinboro.
Two of his brothers, George Anderson
of California and W. A. Anderson
of Vernon, had come to America
while their brother was in college
and their accounts of the opportunities
of the growing Southwest led
Dr. Anderson to move to Texas after
practicing for a time in London after
his graduation in 1885. He came
here twenty-six years ago and began
his practice. Having been made cognizant
while in Scotland and England
of the advantages of a thorough university
training he interested himself
in securing the founding of a medical
college here and was one of the originators
of the Fort Worth Medical
College, president of the board of
directors and vice-president of the
faculty. He held the professorship
of medicine until a few years ago,
when he could no longer spare the
necessary time for the purpose. Dr.
Anderson married Miss Martha Beggs
of Fort Worth, December 23, 1895.
They have two sons, George Beggs
Anderson and James Anderson, Jr.
Dr. Anderson is a member of the
Tarrant County, North Texas, Texas
State and American Medical Societies.
His brother, Dr. John Anderson,
was for thirty years a surgeon
in the English army in India. He is
now a resident of London.
