In a 1994 interview in The Sun, Mr. Anderson noted that because of a heart murmur, the Army disqualified him from service during World War I.

During World War II, he worked as a purchasing agent for the Navy and a steamship company. He also worked in real estate and sales and retired as a water supply purchasing inspector for New York City in 1973.

He was born in Elizabeth, N.J., and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y. He lived for more than 50 years in North Sea on Long Island, N.Y., where he had been a member of the volunteer Fire Department since the 1930s.

He married Anna Belle Perry in 1922; she died in 1988.

He was a member of the Bahai World Faith for more than 75 years.

Funeral services will be held at 7 p.m. tomorrow at Barranco and Sons Funeral Home, Ritchie Highway and Robinson Road, Severna Park, and at 11 a.m. Saturday on Long Island.

He is survived by a son, John Anderson of Sag Harbor, N.Y.; a daughter, Joan Weingartner of Arnold; nine grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren.
