Robert N. Anderson was a commercial ship's captain. He commanded the schooner Corona in the 1880s and the S.S. Winona in the late 1910s, carrying freight between the United States and the United Kingdom and elsewhere.
Records were purchased by the Dalhousie University Archives from Larry Fillmore in accession (1983-089) on 28 April 1982.
