From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Glenn Malcolm Anderson (February 21, 1913 – December 13, 1994) was Lieutenant Governor of California and later a Democratic congressman.

Anderson was born 1913 in Hawthorne, California. He received a Bachelor of Arts from University of California, Los Angeles in 1936. He worked as a real estate developer and served in the United States Army.

Anderson was mayor of Hawthorne, California during 1940–1942 and a member of the California State Assembly 1942–1948. He served as Lieutenant Governor of California, 1959–1967, but was defeated in a bid for a third term by Republican Robert Finch.

Anderson was first elected to the 91st Congress in 1968 and served 12 terms, 1969–1993. In Congress he became chair of the Committee on Public Works and Transportation. He decided not to run for reelection in 1992 and died 1994 in Los Angeles. He is interred in Green Hills Cemetery, Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

The Interstate 105 in South Los Angeles is named in his honor as the "Glenn M. Anderson Freeway," but that name is rarely used. It is known colloquially as "the 105" freeway.
