EDWARD L. ANDERSON.
The mining interests of Joplin are well represented by Edward L. Anderson, a leading and enterprising citizen,
whose well directed efforts and unfaltering industry are bringing to him a creditable and satisfactory success.
Since 1896 he has carried on operations in Jasper county, and he is now holding the responsible position of president
of the Bogna Mining Company.
Mr. Anderson is a Kentuckian by birth, having first opened his eyes to the light of day in Paducah, that state.
His father, E. L. Anderson, was a native of the Blue Grass state. His mother was in her maidenhood Miss Mary Norton,
and was a daughter of John L. Norton, of Russellville, Kentucky. She was a sister of Judge Elijah H. Norton, who
for thirty years served as circuit judge of Platte county, Missouri, and for twenty years was supreme judge of
the state of Missouri. He is now living retired from the active duties of life, although he still owns large mining
interests in Newton and Jasper counties, his landed possessions aggregating about one thousand acres.
Mr. Anderson, of this review, married Miss Elizabeth Field, a native of Platte county, Missouri, and a daughter
of Dr. G. W. Field. Our subject came to his present location from Platte county, Missouri, and during his residence
in Jasper county he has steadily worked his way upward to a position among its prominent citizens. He ranks very
high as an honorable and successful representative of his chosen calling, and well deserves mention among the worthy
citizens of his adopted state.
