The Roy A. Anderson Papers, 1909-1995 (10 boxes) document the career and life of Anderson during the second half of the twentieth
century, and the early history of Lockheed Corporation from the early 1900s into the 1990s. The collection is divided into
two series, Lockheed Corporation and Personal, with the bulk of materials concentrated in the Lockheed Corporation series.
The bulk of the collection consists of photographs, correspondence, clippings, and ephemera. The collection is especially
rich in photographic prints of early Lockheed aircraft, employees, and customers. The collection is small; as such, it does
not document the detailed activities of the Lockheed Corporation.
Roy Arnold Anderson (1920-2003) was born on 15 December 1920 in Ripon, California. He was one of six children born to Carl
Gustav Anderson and Esther Marie Johnson, Swedish immigrants. Anderson enlisted in the United States Navy during World War
II and worked in the Naval Intelligence Division in San Francisco. A certified public accountant, Anderson earned a Bachelor
of Arts in Economics in 1947 and Master of Business Administration in 1949 from Stanford University where he was elected to
Phi Beta Kappa. He was called back into service during the Korean War and served in the Naval Cost Inspection Service, assigned
to Westinghouse Electric as a resident cost inspector, where he also worked following the war as an accounting manager.
