Scattered business papers of George Wayne Anderson and business and military papers of Edward Clifford Anderson Jr. Included are leases, accounts, wills, insurance policies, certificates of shares, receipts, bank statements, tax returns, memoranda, letters, indentures, and plats. Most of the papers deal with the activities of George Wayne Anderson as property owner; executor or administrator of various estates, including those of William Washington Gordon (1796-1842), William J. Scott, and John Waters; and president of Planters Bank of Savannah. Most extensive is the correspondence of Elizabeth Mackensie and the Manson family of England and Scotland concerning an estate that Anderson administered for them. Also included are nine letters of Edward Clifford Anderson (1815-1883), brother of George Wayne Anderson and mayor of Savannah, relating to local politics, and a few letters of other members of the Anderson family. Civil War papers include commissions, orders, and letters chiefly from Edward Clifford Anderson Jr. to his superiors concerning recruitment, organization, and consolidation of the Randolph Rangers, a regiment he raised. A record book tracks commissions, transfers, discharges, deaths, and desertions of officers and soldiers. After 1870, the papers are largely those of Edward Clifford Anderson Jr. Some of these papers concern an embezzlement of funds from the Planters Bank. Papers, 1892-1896, pertain to the Atlantic Short Line Railroad, the Macon and Atlantic Railway, and the Macon and Savannah Construction Company.
