About Charles Anderson
Charles Anderson was Police Chief in Kamloops in 1929. He was in charge in Kamloops during the Depression years when Kamloops became a gathering and transit point for the many thousands of unemployed men who rode the rails.
Anderson was transferred from Kamloops in 1938, but after his retirement in 1946, Kamloops invited him back to serve as Juvenile Officer and Probation Officer. In 1952 he became City Magistrate.
He retired again in 1958, at age 77, but the City hired him again as Clerk of the Court and Justice of the Peace. In 1961, Anderson became Kamloops' first "Citizen of the Year" and was named a Freeman of the City in 1968. He died in 1969 at age 88. The Charles Anderson Stadium was named in his honour in 1980.
