Apparently Anderson had his own shop during the 1990's, the Quimby firm has several references to him providing it with pipes for use in repair or enlargement of Aeolian-Skinner organs as late as 1999:

"St. Peter's Catholic Church, Fort Wayne, Indiana; relocation and addition of Choir organ to Aeolian-Skinner Opus 1337, originally built for the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Fort Wayne."
