Alexander G. Anderson died in Rhodesia on October 30th, 1936, at the age of 58.

From 1894 to 1898 he received a course of training in chemistry at Anderson’s College Medical School, Glasgow, and for two years during this period took additional evening courses in metallurgy at the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College. On the completion of his training he secured practical experience as a chemist with various iron and steel companies in Scotland, and in 1902 he went to Mashonaland to join the cyanide works staff of Rezende, Ltd. He remained with that company for many years, but later settled in Gatooma, where he set up in practice as a consulting metallurgist, and was proprietor of the Gatooma Assay Office until his death.

Mr. Anderson was elected an Associate of the Institution in 1905.
