Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Larz Anderson III (born August 15, 1866 in Paris, France; died April 13, 1937 in White Sulphur Spring, WV) was a wealthy American businessman and diplomat who briefly served as U.S. Ambassador to Japan (1912-1913). Anderson was a member of Sons of the Revolution, the Loyal Legion and the Society of the Cincinnati. He died in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. Anderson, an Episcopalian, was interred at Washington National Cathedral. The following are named after him: Anderson House, national HQ of the Society of the Cincinnati in Washington, D.C. Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline, Massachusetts, Larz Anderson Bonsai Collection at Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. Larz Anderson Park in Brookline, Massachusetts. Anderson Memorial Bridge, connecting Boston and Cambridge, Massachusetts, is often assumed to be named after him and is called "Larz Anderson Bridge" by locals.
