American newspaper political reporter since 1947 with hard-hitting exposes of scandal and corruption in high places. Not only was his "Washington Merry-Go-round" syndicated in 746 papers with millions of readers, but he was massively popular on radio and TV broadcasts. Anderson was also the author of political biographies.

Called a muckraker by some, Anderson was sued in 1981 when he wrote in three articles in the Investigator that the ultraconservative Liberty Lobby and its founder, Willis Carto, were Neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic and racist. Carto and his organization sued Anderson for libel, claiming they had used unreliable sources. Citing the First Amendment, the case was dismissed before it went to trial.

A Mormon, he married on 10 October 1949. Anderson had nine kids.

A Pulitzer Prize winner, he was as active as ever at 75 after reporting for 50 years. His column continued in 300 papers and he was the chair for Young Astronauts, which has two million members, and Citizens Against Government Waste.

He died of complications from Parkinson's disease on 17 December 2005, aged 83, in Bethesda, Maryland.

Source Notes

Contemporary Sidereal Horoscopes (Gauquelin Book of American Charts gives October 9 in error. The 19th is confirmed by his wife to Joanne Clancy of AA).

In April 2019, Sy Scholfield provided the birth certificate and upgraded the rating to AA (BC/BR in hand). The BC was filed on 20 Oct 1922 and states date of birth as 9 Oct, but the California Birth Index gives 19 Oct.
