William Daniel Anderson (1808-1842)

1825 William Anderson, Junior, Engineer, Abingdon Street, became a member of the Institution of Civil Engineers.[1]

1843 Obituary [2]

Mr. W. D. Anderson was a pupil of our first President, Mr. Telford, after whose decease he travelled in Italy, whence he sent to the Anderson Institution a series of drawings of the Ponte Santa Trinita at Florence.

On his return he was engaged under Mr. W. Anderson (his father), the Engineer of the Grand Junction Water-works, on several surveys and other works.

He then gave plans for, and was appointed engineer to, the Exeter Water-works, which situation he resigned in 1837, in order to become engineer to the corporation of Newcastle-on-Tyne, where he constructed some important works.

Ill health obliged him to resign this latter appointment in the year 1841, and his decease took place during the last summer.
